Adjunct Professor of Communication Cesar Beltran recently represented Eastern Connecticut State University at "Holocaust in Hungary" at the United Nations Headquarters in New York City. The exhibition was in observance of the 70th anniversary of the deportation and extermination of the Hungarian Jews.
The exhibition reflected on the political and social events that led to the Hungarian Holocaust, the various atrocities committed against Hungarian Jews, and the acts of courage by those who resisted the status quo and safeguarded Jews. "The event was solemn and dignified and attended by some 120 invitees," said Beltran. Above, Beltran talks with Katrina Lantos Swett of the Lantos Foundation.
