Pápoc

The municipality of Pápoc must have had a church as early as the Árpád Age. In the Middle Ages it had three churches, a medieval hospital based on a hot spring, and several mills. Apart from these premises it had the privilege to impose tolls and hold fairs, and one of the oldest ecclesiastic schools was established here by the Augustine order. The most intact remnant from those times, the chapel devoted to the Virgin Mary, is a beautiful example of a four foiled Romanesque church.

Hungarian Prime Minister Ferenc Szalasi is given the last rites before being hanged/strangled as a collaborator in Budapest, 12th March 1946 -

Ferenc Szálasi was the leader of the fascist Arrow Cross Party – Hungarist Movement, the “Leader of the Nation” (Nemzetvezető), being both Head of State and Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Hungary’s “Government of National Unity” (Nemzeti Összefogás Kormánya) for the final three months of Hungary’s participation in World War II, after Germany occupied Hungary and removed Miklós Horthy by force. During his brief rule, Szálasi’s men murdered 10,000–15,000 Jews. After the war, he was executed after a trial by the Hungarian court for crimes against the state committed during World War II.
When the war ended, Szálasi was captured by American troops and returned to Hungary. He was tried by the People’s Tribunal in Budapest in open sessions and sentenced to death for war crimes and high treason. Szálasi was hanged in 1946 in Budapest. From Wikipedia
