Yad Vashem has posted a recorded lecture: Conscripted Slaves: Hungarian Jewish Forced Laborers on the Eastern Front. It is free to view.

 

A recording of a special discussion about Jewish forced laborers during the Holocaust: Dr. Robert Rozett, Senior Historian at Yad Vashem, sheds light on this little known chapter of Holocaust history. Anti-Jewish legislation was passed in Hungary beginning in March 1938 and in the spring of 1942 the Hungarian antisemitic regime began to draft large numbers of Jewish-Hungarian men into forced labor companies – two years before Nazi Germany dispatched troops to Hungary. Practically no Jewish-Hungarian family was untouched; many husbands, fathers and brothers never returned, dying from battle, starvation, disease, grueling labor and outright murder.   See: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=09r2r9Mgyuc&feature=youtu.be
