permanent link

Informing the Hungarian news agency MTI on the International Day of the Disappeared the representative of the Hungarian Red Cross mentioned that they are to launch a new site to help people with tracing queries. The site (Tracing Service) should be operational from mid-September.

The number of opened cases almost reached 2000 last year, half of which were closed with success. Some 50% of the queries concerned missing persons of WW2, 12% related to the 1956 Hungarian revolution and the cold war years.

A sample of sources quoting the release: 1, 2 (there are many more).
