Hungarian news portal magyarnarancs.hu reports: A memorial erected in remembrance of the victims of the Holocaust and World War II was inaugurated in ELTE’s Trefort Garden: the 1-centimeter-wide and 200-meter-long bronze strip embraces the university campus along its walls as a kind of unique grout between the bricks, bearing 199 names. The university pays homage to its former professors, students, and staff members, all of those who lost their lives as a result of the anti-Jewish laws in forced labor, concentration camps, ghettos, or military service.
