    Not all Hungarians are like 'Hungarian' in this Talkback. I, for one, despise the Jobbik and its antisemitic, anti-gypsy, 'magyarkodo' rhetoric. It's shameful that so many Hungarians voted for this party. The explanation is complex: my guess is that it's a mixture of age-old antisemitism, frustrated nationalism, heavy economical problems (for which, of course, somebody else needs to be blamed), self-pity, some particularities of the Hungarian national character, and many other factors. Anyway, if somebody wants to read an account of Jewish fate in WW2 Hungary, I can recommend the book 'Fatelessness' (Sorstalansag) by Nobel Prize winning author Imre Kertesz.
