The Jews of Budapest in Yad Vashem Studies, Volume XVI

Zvi Erez


The Jews of Budapest and the Plans of Admiral Horthy - August-October 1944

Erez describes Horthy’s negotiations with the Allies, particularly the Soviets, to arrange a secret surrender so that the Russians rather than the Germans would occupy Hungary. In October the Germans, aided by the antisemitic Hungarian Arrow Cross Party, foiled these plans. Horthy’s attitude toward the Jews is also examined. He wanted to save them, because he thought they were important to the Allies and partly for humane reasons. The attitude of the Allied powers was indifferent.
