Central Europe was affected by strong anti-Semitic wave after World War II. Slovakia wasn't an exception in this way. Especially its eastern regions had to deal with this problem.

The first anti-Jewish actions happened in Kosice, Humenne and Presov in the first days and the first weeks after the end of World War II. Consequently it spread into other parts of Slovakia, too. This anti-Jewish propaganda was connected with economic, social as well as national motives. Mostly it spread through posters and demonstrations. Murders of the Jews in Snina district in November and December 1945 presents a specific problem
