Germany Occupies Hungary

Once Hitler caught wind of Hungary’s ambitions to make peace, he lost trust in Horthy and ordered the military occupation of Hungary. After ‘Operation Margarethe’ proved successful, all of the nation’s potential resources fell under the aegis of German military interests. Assisted by Hungary’s state bureaucracy and law enforcement agencies, the deportation of hundreds of thousands of Jews was initiated. No organised form of resistance occurred. A badly planned attempt to leave the German alliance failed in under a day.
