The Holocaust in the area of the Western Group of Occupation Forces. Account of the Solicitor Division of the State Protection Authority in the case of Nándor Pápai, 12th of January, 1950.

The participation of the Hungarian occupying troops in the Nazi genocide in the Soviet territories lately has got into the focus of attention. A nation-wide debate has emerged in Hungary, and it shows that it could be rewarding to deepen the researches among the documents kept on the shelves of the Hungarian archives as well. This document is an account of an investigation by the Hungarian authorities after the war about the sequential mass murders. It reveals that despite the former statement of the literature, the troops of the Western Group of Occupation Forces actively took part in the Holocaust.


The early period of the Hungarian folk-dance movement – social ideology or national art?

The beginnings of Hungarian dance-house movement in its present form were in the 1970s. Nevertheless, it has important precedents already between the world wars and after WWII. There are no such widely known legendaries about these earlier folk dance movements, but it is still important to study them from the aspects of cultural- and social histories and of the history of ideas as well.
