New Names Added to Budapest Memorial

Four new large marble plaques with the names of 240 non-Jewish Hungarians who risked their lives to save Jews were installed near Budapest's Holocaust Memorial. The memorial, designed by Imre Vaga in the form of a weeping willow tree with names of victims inscribed on leaves, was erected in 1990 near the courtyard of the Dohany Street Synagogue, in a small park named for Raoul Wallenberg. The erection of the memorial and the new plaques was sponsored by New York based Emanuel Foundation for Hungarian Culture, with funds raised from private donors.
