Roundtable: 100,000 Lost: Child Victims of the Holocaust in Hungary

A roundtable discussion with three outstanding experts of Holocaust history, Professor Tim Cole, Professor Dan Stone and Dr Gabor Kadar.


Every tenth victim of the Holocaust was a Hungarian citizen, a victim group constituting half a million people. Among them, more than one hundred thousand were children and teenagers. Most of their names and stories are unknown. Although Anne Frank, one of the most well-known victims of the Holocaust, was herself a child, the perspectives and experiences of child victims (Hungarians and others) are often marginal in mainstream Holocaust research, education and remembrance.

With the support of the Europe for Citizens Program of the European Commission, The Wiener Library has been working in partnership with the Hungarian Jewish Museum and Archives, the Anne Frank House and the Komarno Jewish Community to explore, collect and publicise the personal stories of Hungarian Jewish child victims of the Holocaust. Stemming from this effort, this event will feature a panel with presentations and roundtable discussion by three outstanding experts of Holocaust history, Professor Tim Cole, Professor Dan Stone and Dr Gabor Kadar. The panellists will illuminate various approaches to research into the fate of Hungarian Jewish children, including lesser-known aspects of this history.
