Publisher’s paper cover. On the front page: „Farkas Mihály elvtársnak – 1950. május 1. Rákosi Mátyás”. Inscribed by Rákosi, Mátyás (1892 – 1971) Hungarian Jewish Communist politician to Farkas, Mihály (1904 – 1965) Hungarian Jewish Communist politician.
Mátyás Rákosi (1892 -1971) was a Hungarian communist politician. He was born Mátyás Rosenfeld in Ada, present-day Serbia. He was the leader of Hungary’s Communist Party from 1945 to 1956 — first as General Secretary of the Hungarian Communist Party (1945–1948) and later holding the same post with the Hungarian Working People’s Party (1948–1956). As such, from 1949 to 1956, he was the de facto ruler of Communist Hungary. An ardent Stalinist, his government was very loyal to the Soviet Union. American journalist John Gunther described Rákosi as “the most malevolent character I ever met in political life.
Mihály Farkas (1904 1965) was a Hungarian Jewish Communist politician. He was Minister of National Defence from 9 September 1948 to 2 July 1953. He was one of the main instigators during the Rákosi era.
