Description

A series of large-scale expropriations and evictions of the heavily Jewish Budapest middle-class in 1951 revealed the limited implementation and enforcement of the Human Rights provisions of the Hungarian constitution. The American Legation and the US State Department collected evidence of Human Rights violations, which stirred an international debate over events in Hungary that offers evidence that there was "Holocaust silence" in the early 1950s.
