The Right Wing and the Roma (EU Presidency a Test for Tolerance in Hungary)

SPIEGELONLINE

By Siobhán Dowling in Budapest, Hungary

Hungary will assume the six-month
rotating presidency of the European Union in January and the government
is pledging to forge a policy for addressing the Roma in all of Europe.
But the country has its own troubling history with the Roma, who have
been deeply impoverished and pushed to the margins of society since the
fall of the Iron Curtain.

Csaba Csorba is standing in scrubland beside the burned-out shell of
a small house. He points to the spot amid the tall grass where he found
his son Robert bleeding in the snow almost two years ago. Nearby lay
the body of his four-year-old grandson Robi. The small boy had been
shot through the head, his face was unrecognizable.
