      From Hungarian Neo-Nazi to Orthodox Jew

      A film is being made on the life story of reformed neo-Nazi Csanad Szegedi, who made headlines last year after discovering his Jewish roots. The film will be produced by production company AJH Films and seasoned documentary and non-fiction company Roast Beef Productions.

      Szegedi's career in Far Right politics was cut short by the revelation that his grandparents were Holocaust survivors and that he was Jewish. As a leading member of the Jobbik party, Szegedi’s politics were characterized by his anti-Semitic and anti-Roma comments. His rise through the party ranks took him to his current position as a Member of the European Parliament in Brussels.
