The national Chief Rabbi also reacted to Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán’s speech in Tusványos, in which he said that we live in a mixed-race world, but Hungarians in the Carpathian Basin are not mixed-race.
The national chief rabbi also reacted to Viktor Orbán’s speech in Tusványos, which struck a chord with many. The Bálványos Summer Free University and Student Camp – better known as Tusványos – has become one of the main arenas of Hungarian politics. The Prime Minister was the keynote speaker at this year’s festival again.
There is a world where the peoples of Europe mix with those from outside Europe – a world of mixed races. And we have us, where people from within Europe mix, move, work and relocate. So, for example, in the Carpathian Basin, we are not a mixed race, we are simply a mixture of people living in our own European homelands, Viktor Orbán said in his speech.

In response to this, Róbert Frölich, the national Chief Rabbi, shared a poem on his official Facebook page, in which he wrote that he thought of Attila József, Miklós Radnóti, Antal Szerb, Endre Gelléri Andor, Jenő Rejtő and many other names and faces, known and unknown, who “fell victim to the onion-headed theories of race”.
“Speaking of race. Many different species populate our planet. But there is only one species that lives on this earth, walking, working, talking and sometimes thinking: Homo Sapiens Sapiens. This species is one and indivisible. I commend the above to your attention”
– The Chief Rabbi said in his post.
Several opposition parties and politicians have reacted to the speech. The Ukrainian foreign affairs spokesperson has also commented on the Prime Minister’s statements on the war, saying that Orbán’s speech is “a classic example of Russian propaganda”.
