In our study we willl take a closer look at Miklós Pottyondy and Károly Pottyondi, two key persons of the Szeged of 1919 and their role in the counter revolutionary movement. Our article will briefly introduce their family background, their lives from birth till the First World War and their place in their home town’s society. Moving on we will discuss the year 1919 with added emphasis on the time of the Hungarian Soviet Republic and the events that have transpired in Szeged. We will place the two brothers in this framework and show how they played their part in various counter revolutionary and anti-communist actions. The older brother, Miklós, who was a police captain was taken by the reds who planned to kill him even after his return to Szeged, due to the large role he played in the capture of communists remaining in the city. His younger brother, Károly, returned to his home town as one of the most highly decorated majors of the Great War. First played a part in the removal of his left wing superior then in the May of 1919 he was one of most important orchestrators of the coup which placed the local garrison into the hand of the counter revolution and layed the foundation of the Hungarian National Army. At the end we will take a brief look at the time after the fall of the Soviet Republic and talk about what role, if any, the two brothers played in preserving the memory of the counter revolution between the two world wars.
