Hungarian Military Labor Servicemen and Relatives | Los Angeles Museum of the Holocaust

Name: Hungarian Military Labor Servicemen and Relatives

Historical Note: The Hungarian Military Labor Service established labor companies for Jewish men. These companies were included into battalions. Commanding staff comprised of Hungarian-commissioned and non-commissioned officers. Jewish labor servicemen, although wearing Hungarian military uniforms, did not have rights to carry any weapons. These labor companies, largely comprised of Jewish men, built military installations, roads, and civilian objects. Some Jewish labor companies were attached to the Hungarian combat units and followed them to the front lines. A number of Jewish labor companies were sent to the Eastern Front during the Summer Campaign of 1942. However, a majority of Jewish labor units were stationed in the Hungarian or Hungarian-annexed territories in Central Europe.
