László Rajk (1909-1949) was an opposant to the communist rule in Hungary.

Huh!!!??? Rajk was definitely not an "opposant" of communism. He just happened to be a different kind of Communist than Rákosi. Will some Hungarologist please phrase this properly? Cheers Io 15:14, 8 March 2006 (UTC)

I beleive he was not a different kind of communist. He was a stalinist, like Rakosi. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 11:32, 21 August 2008 (UTC)

I think what the first guy was trying to say was that Rajk was from a different era of communist, i.e. he had been friends with Karolyi and was a Spanish civil war veteran. What happened to him was akin to Stalin eliminating most of the "old Bolsheviks" — Preceding unsigned comment added by E7ir (talkcontribs) 23:24, 13 September 2012 (UTC)

Chained dog of Tito's imperialism[edit]

Special hungarian communist expression. It doesn't mean that Rajk was a barking dog, but Rákosi chained (imprisoned) him, it means that Tito held the chain of Rajk in his hands and this fascist Rajk was barking against proletar power. Great Hungarian Language, how expressive You are! :-))) Gubb     2006. May 19 22:10 (CEST) 22:10, 19 May 2006 (UTC)

Did he die in 1949 or 1950? The article says both. Adam 04:10, 8 October 2006 (UTC)


Can anyone clarify whether Rajk was Jewish? If so, his Jewishness could have been an extra pretext with which to prosecute him, and would be important information to include in this article. I have heard that he was, but cannot find that information on other wikipedia language versions.

This sentence has a mistake: "In this post he organized the Hungarian Communist Party's private army and secret police (an organization analogous to the SS, KGB, Securitate, Stasi and so on), "

The SS was not like the KGB or the Stasi or Securitate. 

The latter were secret services, the SS was more like an "elite" executionist troop under the Nazis. The comparison makes no sense.

About Laszlo Rajks background...

Isn't is strange that the German article on Rajk says he comes from a German family and the Hungarian article that he comes from a Szekler family?

Talk about inaccuracy!

He was born in a village whose name contains the word Szekely. That absolutely does not mean he was Szekely. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 18:11, 2 March 2014 (UTC)
