The Hungarian Holocaust with Moshe Y. Vardi
|Date||Tue, Feb 2, 6:30pm - 7:30pm|
The Hungarian Holocaust constitutes a very special chapter of the Holocaust. Although it took place very close to the end of World War II, with deportations starting in May 1944, the Nazi industrial killing machine was by then so sophisticated that some 565,000 Hungarian Jews were murdered by the end of 1944. The speaker's parents both survived the Hungarian Holocaust. The talk will cover the story of this chapter of the Holocaust, as well as the stories of some of the survivors, and some of its aftermath.
Moshe Y. Vardi is a University Professor and the George Distinguished service Professor in Computational Engineering at Rice University.
Admission is free and open to the public. Guests will receive a private Zoom link so advance registration is required.
