  1. Laszlo Csatary has been “under investigation” by Hungarian police since last fall. This man murdered 15,700 innocent people, including my grandmother, with great cruelty. He was known to whip women and make them dig holes with their hands.

    What will Hungary do? Arrest him, give him a medal and a statue, or nothing? Recently Arrow Cross Nazis have been held up as heroes.

    The whole world is watching.
