Béla Kun (1886–1939) was a jew and a mass murderer, terrorist active in Hungary. He is best known as the Bolshevik leader who led the so-called Hungarian Soviet Republic (communist) in 1919 and also for his genocidal campaign against the gentiles in the Crimea with Rozaliia Zemliachka (another jew). Bela Kun, like many other jews changed his name. Béla Magyarized his birth surname from Kohn (Cohn), to Kun in 1904 or 1906, although the almanac of the University of Kolozsvár still referred to him in print by his former name as late as 1909.
Magyarization (also Hungarization) was an assimilation or acculturation process by which non-Hungarian nationals came to adopt the Hungarian (also called “Magyar”) culture and language. When referring to personal and geographic names, Magyarization refers to the replacement of a non-Hungarian name with a Hungarian one.
They are unsure of the exact date that he changed his name, although it is clear that from 1904 all those around him referred to him as Béla Kun rather than Kohn, and he likewise made the Magyar variant his signature.
Kun served on the Kolozsvár Social Insurance Board, from which he was later to be accused of embezzling. A jew stealing money… Sounds about right. He also had a reputation for being ill tempered.
Kun fought for Austria-Hungary in World War I, and was captured and made a prisoner of war in 1916 by the Russians. He was sent to a POW camp in the Urals, where he became a Communist. Kun became fluent in Russian and he was also fluent in German and competent in English.
In March 1918, in Moscow, Kun co-founded the Hungarian Group of the Russian Communist Party (the predecessor to the Hungarian Communist Party). He travelled widely, including to Petrograd and Moscow. He came to know Vladimir Lenin (Jew) there, but inside the party he promoted ultra-radical left-wing political opposition to Lenin and the mainstream Bolsheviks.
In the Russian Civil War in 1918, Kun fought for the Bolsheviks. During this time, he first started to make detailed plans for a communist revolution in Hungary. Kun founded the Hungarian Communist Party in Budapest on November 4, 1918, with at least several hundred other Hungarian Communists and with a large sum of money provided by the Soviets.
He immediately began a highly energetic propaganda campaign against the government: he and his followers engaged in attacks against the President. In addition, the Communists held frequent marches and rallies and organized strikes. Desiring to foment a revolution in Hungary, he communicated by telegraph with Vladimir Lenin(jew) to garner support from the Bolsheviks which would ultimately not materialize.
Following the fall of the Hungarian revolution, Kun emigrated to the Soviet Union, where he worked as a functionary in the Communist International bureaucracy. As Kun was known to be friendly with Lenin, it was assumed that including him in the government would bring Soviet aid for war against the Allies.
On 21 March 1919 a Soviet Republic was announced; the Social Democrats and Communists were merged under the interim name Hungarian Socialist Party, and Béla Kun was released from prison and sworn into office. The Hungarian Soviet Republic, the second Communist government in Europe after Russia itself. In the Soviet Republic, Kun served as Commissar for Foreign Affairs but was the dominant personality in the government during its brief existence. As he told Lenin,
“My personal influence in the Revolutionary Governing Council is such that the dictatorship of the proletariat is firmly established, since the masses are backing me.”
Béla Kun’s government refused to redistribute land to the peasantry, thereby alienating the majority of their support in Hungary. Instead, Kun declared that all land was to be converted into collective farms. The masses no longer backed him… To provide food for the cities, the Soviet Republic resorted to food requisitioning in the countryside through a red militia known as the Lenin Boys (terrorists). This caused further conflict between Kun and his supporters in the countryside.
After a failed anti communist coup attempt on June 24, Kun organized a response in the form of the Red Terror via secret police, revolutionary tribunals and semi regular detachments like Tibor Szamuely’s (jew) bodyguards, the Lenin Boys. Their victims were estimated to range in number from 370 to about 600 persons executed.
The Red Terror in Hungary was a series of atrocities aimed at crushing political rivals during the four-month regime of the Hungarian Soviet Republic in 1919. It was so named because of its similarity to the Red Terror in Soviet Russia in both purpose and effect. It was soon to be followed by the White Terror against communists.
Hungary was soon at war later in April with the Kingdom of Romania and Czechoslovakia, both aided by France. The Hungarian Red Army achieved some success against the Czechoslovaks, taking much of Slovakia by June.
The Allied Commander in the Balkans, the French Marshal Louis Franchet d’Esperey wrote to Marshal Ferdinand Foch on 21 July 1919: “We are convinced that the Hungarian offensive will collapse of its own accord… You see, Marshal, we have nothing to fear from the Hungarian army. I can assure you that the Hungarian Soviets will last no more than two or three weeks. And should our offensive not bring the Kun regime down, its untenable internal situation surely will.” Communism will always fail!
The Soviets promised to invade Romania and link up with Kun and were on verge of doing so, but military reversals suffered by the Red Army in Ukraine stopped the invasion of Romania before it began. The Romanians then invaded Hungary, took Budapest, crushed the Communists and on August 1, 1919 and forced them to hand over power to the Social Democratic party. The Hungarian Soviet Republic fell in the first week of August 1919, when Romanian forces deployed to fend off the Hungarian invasion pushed all the way into Budapest. Szamuely fled to Austria but was caught and killed there. József Cserny was arrested and tried in November 1919; the Hungarian Bar Association refused to defend him at trial, so a lawyer was appointed by the court. He was executed in December.
Béla Kun then went into exile in Vienna, then controlled by the Social Democratic Party of Austria. He was captured and interned in Austria, but was released in exchange for Austrian prisoners in Russia in July 1920. He never returned to Hungary. Once in Russia, he rejoined the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. Kun was put in charge of the regional Revolutionary Committee in Crimea.
It was in Crimea that the White Russians led by General Wrangel made their last stand against the Red Army in 1920. Kun, with Lenin’s approval, also executed around 50,000 White prisoners of war and civilians. They had surrendered after having been promised amnesty if they would surrender. While in control of the Crimea, he carried out a policy of mass arrests, executions and atrocities. In the process, between 60,000 and 70,000 inhabitants of the Crimea were shot.
Kun became a leading figure in the Comintern as an ally of Grigory Zinoviev (jew). In March 1921, he was sent to Germany to advise the Communist Party of Germany (KPD). On 27 March, German Communist Party leaders decided to launch a revolutionary offensive in support of miners in central Germany. Kun was the driving force behind the German Communist attempted revolutionary campaign known as “Märzaktion” (“March Action”), which ended in complete failure, despite all the violence involved. They had even attempted to dynamite the express train from Halle to Leipzig. Lenin had completely blamed Kun for the failure, denouncing him left and right. This failure resulted in the first purge of the comintern internal ranks.
During the Great Purge of the late 1930s, Kun was accused of Trotskyism and arrested on June 28, 1937. Little was known about his subsequent fate beyond the fact that he never returned, with even an official Hungarian Communist biographer with official access to the Communist International’s archives in Moscow denied information during the mid-1970s.
It was then at last revealed that after a brief period of incarceration and interrogation, Kun was hauled before a judicial troika on charges of having acted as the leader of a “counter-revolutionary terrorist organization.” Kun was found guilty and sentenced to death at the end of this brief secret judicial proceeding. The sentence was carried out later the same day. The Soviet party told its Hungarian counterpart that Kun had died in prison on November 30, 1939. In 1989, the Soviet government announced that Kun had actually been executed in the Gulag more than a year earlier than that, on August 29, 1938.
