Mária (Manci) Nagy
After WW2 Mária was condemned
to death by hanging at a “People’s
tribunal trial”. She was a war
criminal, who tortured young
Jewish women.

March 1946 Mária was hanged in
Budapest, Hungary.

The noose was attached to the
pole via a hook and was fed
through an eyelet to the
executioner who stood behind her.
When the plank was removed, the
executioner and his assistant
pulled on the noose by hand,
effectively strangling her against
the pole.
