The first anti-Jewish decree comes in effect
As its influence grew, Germany was the political model for Central Europe’s new states. Germany took advantage of the fact that the Versailles peace treaties had neither resolved the region’s conflicts, nor its problems which were worsened by the Soviet Union’s presence to the East. Radical movements gained momentum in Hungary as well. While the first Anti-Jewish Decree was based on religion, the restriction in the Second and Third Anti-Jewish Decrees were drawn on the basis of race.
