EÖRSI

Portrait of Istvan Eorsi, Hungarian writer and political activist who attempted to ignite social reform by working as an organizer during the 1956 revolt against Soviet rule in Hungary. He was a follower of Marxist philosopher George Lukacs, and two anti-Soviet poems that he published in 1956 in the journal Elunk (“We Are Alive”) led to his arrest. Eorsi was sentenced to an eight-year prison term, and his literary works were banned from publication for 12 years. The photo was taken at his favorite alley a few weeks before he died in 2005.
