A large collection of issues of the Hungarian antisemitic newspaper Kakas Marton


Kakas Marton - A large collection of 52 issues (bound) of the Hungarian antisemitic magazine "Kakas Marton". Budapest 1897. From the rarest early antisemitic publications known to us today.


Kakas Marton was published in Budapest once every two weeks between 1894-1914 as an annex to Hírlap. The first editor of the magazine was Victor Rakausi who published under the pseudonym Sipulusz. It was later edited by Szöllősi and then by Andre Rákosi. The reporters who wrote in it gained great popularity in Hungarian society.


The new Hungarian kingdom founded in 1867 first enacted the Emancipation Law, which gives Jews equal rights like all citizens of the country. In 1895 further progress was made and even the Jewish religion was recognized as one of the religions in the country, and gained equal status with the Catholic religion and the Protestant religion. As a result, the proportion of Jews among the leaders in economic, commercial, legal, and cultural life rose rapidly toward the end of the 19th century. While their share of the general population was about four percent, about half of the merchants, doctors and lawyers were Jews. As a result, a widespread antisemitic awakening began, led by MP Victor Ishtuzi. Against this background, the weekly before us was published. The purpose of the issues was to ridicule and highlight the differences between the Jews and the danger they pose to Hungarian society. Alongside cartoons mocking the heads of the Hungarian government, there are cartoons mocking the Jews and their overt and covert influence on Hungarian society.


Extremely rare. The magazine was not mentioned at all in "Die Juden in der Karikatur" which was published in 1921.


[52] bound sheets. Very good condition.
