The proposal prepared by the Public Foundation for Central and East European Historical Research contains 170 pages of images, maps and graphs, while the baseline concept is explained in almost 30 pages.
Two experts speaking on condition of anonymity said “this is astonishing, this cannot be called professional. This is not serious, it is a bad selection of photographs and documents rather than a concept”.
Historian László Karsai dismissed it as “200 pages of nothing”. Moreover, he continued, the concept contains factual errors.
He said it features victims of the Holocaust and their rescuers, but there is little mention of the perpetrators or the historical precedents.
Mazsihisz president András Heisler confirmed that his organisation has received a copy and experts are studying it.
