About this Item

12mo. 40pp. Original printed wrappers. On March 5, 1938, Hungarian Prime Minister Miklós Darányi declared that there was a Jewish question in Hungary, and that it was to be settled in a lawful way. In Hungary, the first step toward a "racial" discrimination among Hungarian citizens was the so-called first Jewish Law of 1938. It stipulated that the proportion of Jews in the following professions: press, theater and film, lawyers, engineers and medical doctors should not exceed twenty percent. In the following year, a second Jewish Law was passed which atated that: "a person is to be regarded as Jewish, if he or she, or at least one of the parents, or at least two of the grandparents were members of the Israelite denomination before the coming into force of the present Law." The relatively high ratio granted to Jews in the professions, listed in the first Jewish Law, was now lowered to six percent. The primary aim of the government with these two Jewish Laws was probably to mollify the anti-Semitic passions of the "Christian nationalist" middle- and lower-middle classes in Hungary. There was no pressure from Nazi Germany in that respect. Finally, in 1941, the legislation passed the third Jewish Law, which is known in Hungarian history as the racist ("race-protecting") law. Act XV of 1941 (the third Anti-Jewish Law) on "The amendment and modification of marriage law XXXI of 1894, and the related necessary racial provisions" went into effect on August 8, 1941. Using Nazi terminology in its preamble, the law applied Germany's Nuremberg laws: everyone with at least two grandparents born into the Israelite faith was defined as a Jew. The law also forbade marriage, and legally sanctioned extramarital sexual intercourse between Jews and non-Jews, provided the male was defined a Jew and the female was not. While the first two anti-Jewish pieces of legislation were accepted by Upper Chamber members representing Christian churches (Jusztinián Serédi, Catholic cardinal-primate, Sándor Raffay, Lutheran and László Ravasz Protestant bishops, as well as other church dignitaries), they strongly opposed the third law, as it drastically interfered with the marital status of converted Jews, thereby violating ecclesiastic jurisdiction. Water-staining and foxing on wrappers. Previous owner's Ex-libris on title. Pages moderately age-toned throughout. Text in Hungarian. Wrappers in overall fair, interior in good to good+ condition.
