Déry Tibor


First imprisoned in 1919, then in 1934 for translating André Gide’s diary of his journey to Russia, over twenty years later Tibor Déry was imprisoned again, this time sentenced to nine years for his writings and political activites during the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 against Soviet occupation. Tibor Déry Committees formed around the world in protest, among the many involved: Picasso, Camus, Sartre, Bertrand Russell, and E.M. Forster.
Today, Tibor Déry is venerated as one of the most important literary figures of Hungary.
