Description

Poster in Hungarian titled, "Honvédek!"

Information Provided by Michael D. Bulmash: Banner exhorting people to vote for Ferenc Szalasi, the leader of the Arrow Cross (Nylas in Hungarian). The Arrow Cross was the Hungarian fascist party and movement established by Ferenc Szalasi. Like the Nazis, they were strongly nationalistic and militantly opposed to Communism and Jews. Also like the Nazis, they were advocates of agriculture. Szalasi led the Hungarian government after Miklos Horthy was dismissed by the Nazis. The so-called "Government of National Unity" terrorized Hungarian Jews and murdered approximately 10,000 to 15,000 people and deported 80,000 to Auschwitz in a five month period.
