“Anti-Semitism is part and parcel of some media affiliated with Hungarian governing party,” says journalist Karl Pfeifer.

BERLIN – While in Israel to deliver a lecture at Tel Aviv University, veteran Austrian-Jewish journalist Karl Pfeifer spoke to The Jerusalem Post via e-mail about anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish sentiments in Central Europe.

He came to speak on the media in Hungary, at a conference on “Contemporary Hungarian Jewry and other minorities” on Sunday.

Pfeifer, who was born in Austria in 1928, fled the Hitler movement in 1938, landing in Hungary where he remained until 1944. As a teenager he escaped Hungarian fascism to the British Mandate in Palestine.
