Summary
Since the fall of the Austro-Hungarian empire after World War I, Hungary has had to deal with fascist hate groups. Siding with the Axis powers during World War II legitimized the pogroms against the Roma and Jewish populations during that time. The collapse of the Hungarian communist system in the early 1990s, and the ensuing social and economic instability, has led to the rise of these groups yet again. This episode examines their actions against the Jews and Gypsies of Hungary. Philanthropist George Soros discusses his human rights work in Hungary and throughout Eastern Europe. Also featured are reports on anti-war activists in Belgrade, Serbia; medical relief for Cuba; human rights heroes being honored in Washington, D.C.; and excerpts from films shown at the Human Rights Watch Film Festival.
