Featuring films, photos and documents from the darkest years of the 20th century, the new permanent exhibition at Budapest’s Holocaust Memorial Museum focuses on the relationship between the government and citizens.

From 1938 on the Hungarian government gradually outlawed a certain, well-defined group of its citizens. These people were deprived of everything that makes a man a human being: their rights, their belongings, their freedom, their dignity and their lives. The process speeded up in 1944, after the German occupation in Hungary.
