Hungary’s territory is revised after the First Vienna Award
With Europe on the brink of World War Two, Hungary formulated increasingly serious demands for new revisions of its borders—an aim it intended to achieve by conducting pro-German politics.

This partial revision of Hungary’s borders deepened the division between the affected countries.
