Pál Teleki

Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Hungary Pál Teleki (November 1, 1879 – April 3, 1941). In 1939 he was appointed Prime Minister of Hungary for the second time, in 1941 – Minister of Foreign Affairs. In December 1940, Pál Teleki signed a treaty of eternal friendship with Yugoslavia. On April 3, 1941, after unsuccessful attempts to resist the plunging of Hungary into the war against Yugoslavia, he committed suicide.

Pál Teleki is accused by Jewish human rights organizations of adopting the anti-Semitic law Numerus clausus, the first in the 20th century, which caused a scandal during the installation of the Tele monument in Budapest in 2004. In 2001, he was posthumously awarded the Cross of the Commander with the star of the Order of Merit of the Republic of Poland.
