About Baron Bela Albert de Dirsztay Béla b Debrecen 1861 d Debrecen 1921 m Iren Brull de Domony b 1867 Béla took the surname Dirsztay in 1889 dropping Fisch (Fischl) and was created Baron de Dirsztay 14 May 1810. He was a famous art collector with one of the largest collections of objets d’art and Herend porcelain in the Empire. He was a director of the Herend Porcelain Factory owned by his cousins. Online sources suggest that Bela's father Gutmann had a father named Moses not Lajos, that the father of Moses was Lazar Eleazar Fischl b~1772 in Timisoara, and an Ignasz was a brother of Moses Fischl. On the other hand, we point to the probability that Laszlo 1860-1922 was the grandson of Lazar, and hence that Gutmann was the son of Lazar not Moses Perhaps Bela is an echo of Baruch, the father of Moritz Baruh, and the (suggested) unknown brother of Lazar 1772-1841 would have been named Baruch if he was the oldest son.
