Israeli Divers to Search Danube River in Budapest for Remains of Hungarian Jews Murdered in Holocaust

An Israeli search-and-rescue group will begin scouring the waters of the Danube River in the Hungarian capital of Budapest this week for the remains of Jews murdered during the Holocaust.

The mission was announced on Monday after a meeting in Budapest between Israeli Interior Minister Aryeh Deri and his Hungarian counterpart, Pinter Sandor.

It will be carried out by divers from the ZAKA organization.

“I am pleased that the Hungarian interior minister has promised assistance, support and technological equipment for the benefit of this project, and I hope that the ZAKA divers will be able to bring these holy martyrs to a full Jewish burial,” Deri said.

The divers, according to a ZAKA statement, will be aided by a newly-purchased sonar device.

ZAKA said negotiations over the first-of-its-kind operation began three years ago.
