The year 1993. Janos Dragomn, a wandering scholar, a world-famous and world-weary Hungarian writer, returns to his native town to visit three old friends. They are Aba Kuno, the almost saintly, highly respected rector of the university; Antal Tombor, the charismatic popular showman-mayor; and Kobra, a stable family man who is also a ubiquitous media pundit dispensing "common sense." The three have wives, all eager to be seduced by Dragomn, whose reputation precedes him. Through a series of flashbacks, covering his intellectually and sexually precocious schooldays, his memories of the life of Jews in 1944, and the 1956 Revolution (brilliantly rendered), we learn that Dragomn inadvertently caused the massacre of six young colleagues. Through the turbulent history of a Central European country, Konrd explores familiar themes and delivers a universal, appropriately ambiguous, message. 6 X 9

The invisible voice : meditations on Jewish themes by György Konrád( Book )
7 editions published between 1999 and 2000 in English and held by 270 libraries worldwide
"Written over the last two decades, the essays in this collection speak to what it means to be Jewish - historically, theologically, ideologically, philosophically - within the context of the Holocaust and the disintegration of Communism. George Konrad is Hungarian and Jewish. He is European and Jewish. A Diaspora Jew, he espouses Zionism, he tells us, as one who might, if he chooses, move to Jerusalem, just as he might, if he chooses, move to Paris." "Konrad covers much ground in The Invisible Voice, from German collective guilt to assimilation, from the Diaspora Jew to Israel and Palestine. He looks at European integration and how the Jews fit into it. Should they work toward assimilation or separation in order to survive? These are thoughtful and provocative essays from one of Europe's preeminent essayists and novelists."--Jacket
Revolution in Hungary : the 1956 Budapest uprising by Erich Lessing( Book )
8 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 159 libraries worldwide
"On October 23, 1956, what began as a mass rally in Budapest quickly evolved into the Hungarian Revolution. Within days, millions of Hungarians were supporting the revolt. It lasted until November 4th, when it was crushed by the Hungarian police and Soviet tanks and artillery. Thousands of Hungarian rebels and Soviet soldiers were killed and injured, and nearly a quarter of a million people fled the country." "Erich Lessing was the first photographer to arrive in Hungary, and he documented the short-lived uprising and its aftermath in a series of photographs, reproduced here in stunning duotone. These world-famous images bring to life once more the hope and euphoria of the first days of the revolt, so soon to be followed by its brutal suppression."--Jacket

A guest in my own country : a Hungarian life by György Konrád( Book )
13 editions published between 2001 and 2012 in 5 languages and held by 80 libraries worldwide
Winner of the 2007 National Jewish Book Award in the category of Biography, Autobiography & Memoir A powerful memoir of war, politics, literature, and family life by one of Europe's leading intellectuals. When George Konrad was a child of eleven, he, his sister, and two cousins managed to flee to Budapest from the Hungarian countryside the day before deportations swept through his home town. Ultimately, they were the only Jewish children of the town to survive the Holocaust. A Guest in My Own Country recalls the life of one of Eastern Europe's most accomplished modern writers, beginning with his survival during the final months of the war. Konrad captures the dangers, the hopes, the betrayals and courageous acts of the period through a series of carefully chosen episodes that occasionally border on the surreal (as when a dead German soldier begins to speak, attempting to justify his actions). The end of the war launches the young man on a remarkable career in letters and politics. Offering lively descriptions of both his private and public life in Budapest, New York, and Berlin, Konrad reflects insightfully on his role in the Hungarian Uprising, the notion of "internal emigration"? the fate of many writers who, like Konrad, refused to leave the Eastern Bloc under socialism? and other complexities of European identity. To read A Guest in My Own Country is to experience the recent history of East-Central Europe from the inside
