Inter-war regent Miklós Horthy’s role following the German occupation of Hungary in 1944 means that he does not deserve to be honoured with a statue in Hungary, Government Commissioner László L. Simon said on 28 May.

They do not want to have anything to do with that era, he added. He described the German occupation as a milestone and a huge tragedy, adding that if it had not happened, then the history of Hungary and the fate of Hungarian Jews would have been different. He also stated that the deportation of Hungarian Jews would not have been possible without Hungarian contribution.
