On the 20th May, in Szombathely, at the match between the Haladás Sopron and the Diósgyőri VTK, the fans of the latter team presented a banner which contained Anti-Semitic threats against Péter Dániel, a left-wing activist and lawyer. The text on the banner („Dániel: Hív a Duna, vár a MÁV!”, meaning: “Dániel: The Danube calls for you, the Hungarian Railway Company awaits you”) is a paraphrase of the Anti-Semitic Hungarian song sometimes chanted at football matches entitled „Auschwitzba indul a vonat” (The train is heading to Auschwitz).[1] This gesture against Dániel comes as a direct reaction to his own vandalizing act perpetrated on 16th May in Kereki (Somogy county) where he poured red paint on the newly inaugurated wooden statue of Miklós Horthy (Regent of Hungary during the Second World War), and placed a cardboard with the  text “Mass murderer! War criminal!”.[2]
