Ferenczy, László

Gendarmerie Lt. Colonel

Ferenczy was among the Three Lászlós’ – László Baky, László Endre and  László Ferenczy, directly responsible for the demise of half a million Hungarian Jews. As ordered by Undersecretaries of the Ministry of the Interior, Endre and Baky, Lt. Colonel Ferenczy emptied the provinces first of Jews, via direct train shipments to Auschwitz. Without his help the deportations would not have succeeded given the small number of SS and Gestapo detailed to locate and deport half a million Jews. At war’s end, Ferenczy was apprehended fleeing in Austria. He was brought to Budapest to stand trial and was executed in 1946.
