Austrian chancellor: Hungary’s refugee policies like Nazi deportations

Austria’s chancellor criticised Hungary for its handling of the refugee crisis on Saturday, likening the country’s policies to Nazi deportations during the Holocaust as refugees complained of their treatment in the eastern European country.

In an interview with German news magazine Der Spiegel, Austrian Chancellor Werner Faymann likened Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s treatment of refugees to the Nazis’ deportations of Jews and others to concentration camps.

“Sticking refugees in trains and sending them somewhere completely different to where they think they’re going reminds us of the darkest chapter of our continent’s history,” he said.
