Of approximately 825,000 Jews living in Hungary in 1941, about 63,000 died or were killed prior to the German occupation of March 1944. Under German occupation, just over 500,000 died from maltreatment or were murdered. Of the 255,000 Jews remaining, less than one-third who had lived within enlarged Hungary in March 1944, survived the Holocaust. Today, the Jewish population of Hungary is approximately 48,200 people, the sixth largest Jewish community in Europe.
