Description
4 documents produced in Hungary in support of the enforcement of the Anti-Jewish Laws, which Hungary began enacting after 1938.
Background
Hungary had an official policy of anti-Semitism and during the 1930s, anti-Jewish policies grew increasingly repressive as Hungarian leaders chose to align with the fascist governments of Germany and Italy. After 1938, Hungry passed a series of anti-Jewish legislations that were based on Germany's Nuremberg Laws. In 1941, Hungary entered the war on the side of Nazi Germany. Before the German occupation of Hungary on March 19, 1944, approximately 100,000 Jewish men were mobilized for forced labor; around 40,000 of them did not survive. The ghettoization and deportation of Jews did not start until the German occupation; but in just eight weeks in 1944, 437,000 Hungarian Jews were deported with the full cooperation of the Hungarian government.
