Each year, hundreds of right-wing extremists and neo-Nazis from across Europe gather in Budapest to commemorate the failed attempt by Nazi German and Hungarian troops to break through the Soviet army’s siege of the city in 1945. The event, known as the ‘Day of Honour’, is a shameful display of Nazi banners, slogans and uniforms. The Hungarian Government has failed to impose an effective ban on the demonstration, even though it clearly violates Hungarian law and threatens the security of Hungarian citizens. Reports show that an organisation called the Homecoming Homeland Knowledge and Tourist Association, which organises an event called Eruption, a celebration of Nazism, has received national grants worth 70 million Hungarian forints, raising profound concerns about direct or indirect public financial support to a demonstration that blatantly contradicts European values.
