Imre Kertész (Hungarian Kertész Imre ) Hungarian writer, winner of the 2002 Nobel Prize in Literature. Born November 9, 1929.

In 2002, Imre Kertes won the Nobel Prize in Literature. In the submission of the Nobel Committee, it was noted that it was given for “describing the fragile experience of the struggle of the individual against the barbaric despotism of history ... In his work, Imre Kertes is looking for an answer to the question of how to preserve his individuality at a time when society is increasingly beginning to subjugate the individual ". Recently he has been living in Germany. With his creativity, Kertes warns that any nation that forcibly imposes its values ​​on others and justifies the massacres and physical elimination of opponents by this, inevitably runs the risk of being punished like the Nazis. The topic of victims of mass repressions is still relevant today, for example, for the Serbian, Croatian or Kurdish population who have suffered from massive ethnic cleansing in the crucible of modern interethnic conflicts. The tragedies of the victims of the Holocaust force us again and again to comprehend such phenomena in the framework of humanistic values, since in the modern world, despite the demands of political correctness, the violence of some groups against others persists, in whatever forms - physical or moral pressure - it is presented.
