The Hungarian delegation led by Csaba Latorcai also held a commemoration in front of building I.18, the site of an exhibition dedicated to Hungarian victims.

The commemoration is held at a time of unrest in the world, he said. Besides the war in Ukraine, “we see religious intolerance growing in western Europe, in the name of cancel culture,” Latorcai said.

Anti-Semitism is still present in the world in the 21st century, and joint action against it is the only way to stand up against it, he said.

The March of the Living commemoration was held on the 80th anniversary of the anti-Nazi uprising in the Warsaw ghetto, and has drawn some 10,000 young people. The delegations will walk the 3km between the Auschwitz I. and Auschwitz-Birkenau lagers on Tuesday afternoon.
