About Baron Lajos (Ludwig) Ignacz von Hatvany-Deutsch

wikipedia - Lajos Hatvany museum, - mes.oszk

yivoencyclopedia .. Lajos was an important patron of literature and a champion of modernism. He wrote major scholarly studies of the poets Sándor Petőfi and Endre Ady (the latter was his close friend). Hatvany was a leftist, liberal thinker who believed in the values of democracy and civil society. These beliefs were not welcome in Hungary after the dissolution of the Austro-Hungarian monarchy; consequently, he had to leave the country twice. After participating in the 1918 bourgeois-democratic revolution as a member of the Hungarian National Council, he moved to Austria and Germany until 1927. When he returned to Hungary that year, he was tried for defaming the country, as he had sharply attacked the regime of Governor Miklós Horthy that emerged in Hungary after the suppression of the 1919 Communist revolution. Sentenced to 1 1/2 years in prison, he wasreleased for health reasons after serving 9 months. Because of the growing threat of fascism, Hatvany left Hungary again, first to Paris, and then to England in 1938. He returned to Hungary in 1947, where he taught at the University in Budapest, received the Kossuth Prize in 1959, and became a member of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences in 1960. Hatvany is primarily remembered as a novelist, though he was also a poet and playwright. His major novel, Urak és emberek (1927; the first part translated into English as Bondy Jr., in 1931), is so closely modeled after Thomas Manns Buddenbrooks that it was mockingly called Judenbrooks..
