Original Cloth. 8vo. VII, 215 pages. 24 cm. First edition. Edited by Randolph L. Braham. “This book describes the attempt in post-Communist Hungary to distort and denigrate the Holocaust, often by respectable public figures such as intellectuals, members of parliment and influential government and party figures. Such figures appear resolved to explain and justify Hungary's linkage to Nazi Germany, rehabilitate the Horthy regime, and absolve the country of any responsibility for the destruction of approximately 550, 000 of its citizens of the Jewish faith or heritage. ” - Publishers description.
