WAR AND REVOLUTION:
The Hungarian anarchist movement in World War I and the Budapest Commune (1919)
by Martyn Everett
The First World War ended in 1918 - everywhere that is except in Hungary - where
the fighting continued. War and economic collapse created a revolutionary situation.
In spite of its size the tiny Hungarian anarchist movement played a significant part in
opposing the blood and slaughter of the First World War. Working with Marxists and
left communists they kick-started a revolution that culminated in the formation of the
Budapest Commune, but were unprepared for the encounter with Bolshevism, and
were among the firstvictims of the White Terror unleashed against the Commune.
