Political Justice in Budapest after World War II

In Hungary, which fell under Soviet influence at the end of World War II, those who had participated in the wartime atrocities were tried by so called people’s courts. This book analyses this process in an objective, quantitative way, contributing to the present timely discussion on the Hungarian war guilt. The authors, Ildiko Barna, associate professor at Eotvos Lorand University and Andrea Peto, professor at CEU’s Department of Gender Studies, apply a special focus on the gender aspect of the trials.
