Hungary: Race Hate against Jews and Roma

[See also in our calendar: http://antifa-hungary.blogspot.com/p/naptar-calendar.html]

Special lecture on Wednesday 24 November 2010, 7pm by Magdalena Marsovszky at The Wiener Library in London, the world's oldest Holocaust memorial institution.
Organised in partnership with Searchlight, the international anti-fascist magazine.

Magdalena Marsovszky is an independent scholar and author living in Munich and Budapest. As a member of the board of Villigst Research Forum on National Socialism, Racism and Antisemitism (forschungsforum.net), her specialist fields of academic research include the study of antisemitism as a cultural attitude, ethnicity and völkisch thinking and antiziganism.
She has particularly monitored and written extensively about the growth of hatred and hate speech against Jews and Roma since the Hungarian elections of April 2010 in which a right-wing conservative government was elected with a massive majority and in which Jobbik, the sister organisation of the right-wing extremist British National Party, was able to win 47 seats in the national parliament. Currently she is delivering lectures in Germany and the UK on the situation in Hungary. Her lecture at the Wiener Library is her first in this country.
The lecture will be held at The Wiener Library, 4 Devonshire Street, London, W1W 5BH.
Admission is free but spaces are limited. To reserve a place, please email info@wienerlibrary.co.uk or call +44 20 7636 7247. To ensure you get a seat on the night, please make sure you arrive at the Library at least ten minutes before the lecture is due to start. After this point, we will consider allocating any empty seats to guests on standby, so that places do not go unused.
Refreshments will be served after the lecture.
