Cartoon: Elie Wiesel

A cartoon by Bela Weisz for Get the Trolls Out! The Hungarian government has missed to express their condolences for the death of Elie Wiesel, writer and Holocaust survivor passed away on 2 July 2016 in New York. In 1944, when he was 15, Wiesel was deported from his town in Transylvania to Auschwitz and then do Buchenwald.  In 2012, the Nobel Prize winner Wiesel renounced the Hungarian ‘Grand Cross’ state award he received in 2004 in protest against what he said was a “whitewashing” of the role of former Hungarian governments in the deportation of Jews during World War Two.
