Sept 1941. Jews in a Hungarian forced labor battalion. Forced labor service was implemented in Hungary in the 1930s when Jews were enlisted in these battalions after their military service. This took place simultaneously with the introduction of discriminatory laws against the Jews, particularly in the economic sphere. The process of discrimination reached its peak in 1941, with the passage of racial laws similar to the Nuremberg Laws.
