Yad Vashem Chairman Dani Dayan reacted to comments made yesterday by Prime Minister of Hungary Viktor Orban stating that Hungarians "do not want to become peoples of mixed race".
"The statement made by Prime Minister of Hungary Viktor Orban is all too reminiscent of ideologies associated with the horrible atrocities of the Holocaust. The Holocaust teaches us that we must address such expressions swiftly and directly. Yad Vashem calls on the Government of Hungary to honor its declared commitment to genuinely remember the Holocaust and effectively combat antisemitism and racism."
