History

Hungarian economist and politician, the Minister of Finance under the Gömbös Cabinet (1932-36), and the President of the Hungarian National Bank. Under Prime Minister Darányi he was Minister of Economics. From May 14, 1938, to February 14, 1939, he was Prime Minister. He founded the Party of Hungarian Renewal (Magyar Megújulás Pártja) in 1940. The first anti-Jewish law was passed under and the second was introduced by his government. He resigned when it was suggested that he had Jewish ancestors; the main reason for his downfall, however, was that his politics was incompatible with Horthy’s policy. After the war he was found guilty of war crimes and executed.
