News server btnews.online has reported that on Wednesday, 23 October a group of about 50 neo-Nazis vandalized the Aurora Jewish Community Center in Budapest, Hungary. The reporting includes a series of photographs, including of the identically-dressed perpetrators.
The neo-Nazis burned a flag and spray-painted graffiti on the facility in the city center. According to Behind the News, local reports claim police refrained from intervening for several minutes.
The Embassy of the United States of America in Budapest issued a statement on Thursday, 24 October, condemning the neo-Nazi vandalism. "The U.S. Embassy Budapest is deeply troubled by the attack yesterday on the Aurora community center in Budapest. The center, run by a Jewish youth group, is an umbrella organization that provides office space to other small civil society groups in Budapest. The attack on a place that provides needed space and support to minorities that seek to exercise their rights is reprehensible. We call on the authorities to safeguard the rights of Aurora and of all civil society organizations in Hungary," the statement reads.
