Right-wing nationalists and residents of the village of Csokako attend ceremonial unveiling of a statue dedicated to Miklos Horthy
Right-wing nationalists and residents of the village of Csokako, located 80km (50 miles) southwest of Budapest, attend a ceremonial unveiling of a statue dedicated to Miklos Horthy, a controversial former regent of Hungary, June 16, 2012. Horthy allied with Nazi Germany in World War Two in exchange for the restoration of some territories that Hungary lost in the Trianon peace treaty at the end of World War One. Horthy was still the head of state, which was already under Nazi occupation, where about 437,000 Jews were deported from Hungary to death camps within a couple of months in 1944. He resigned later that year. REUTERS/Laszlo Balogh (HUNGARY - Tags: SOCIETY POLITICS)
