Mr Orbán also informed his followers of the Tuesday morning wreath-laying ceremony on his social media account, posting this message: “The 75th anniversary of the deportation of Germans in Hungary. Reverence for the victims. Worthy remembrance of the suffering.”
Pursuant to a resolution of the Hungarian Parliament, since 2013, 19 January has been the Memorial Day of the deportation and expulsion of Germans in Hungary which is an official state commemoration.
Deportations began on 19 January 1946; the first train left from Budaörs.
