Hungary postpones erecting disputed WWII memorial

Published: 02.20.14, 13:18 / Israel News

Hungary's government has decided to postpone erecting a disputed memorial of Germany's 1944 invasion until May 31.


The memorial that was slated for inauguration March 19 has been criticized by local Jewish groups and others who see it as an effort to minimize Hungary's role in the Holocaust, when 550,000 Hungarian Jews were killed. (AP)
