István Dékány has recently published the online database that accompanies his book titled Orphans of Trianon.

Foundation providing care for Hungarian Holocaust survivors secretive about its operations

The Hungarian Jewish Social Assistance Foundation (MAZS) is the largest organization in Hungary supporting Holocaust survivors.

They outsource their services to one-man-owned and affiliated companies, while the care receivers complain about the poor quality of care.
