Author: Lajos Walder

Lajos Walder is considered to be one of the most significant modern Hungarian poets. Born in Budapest in 1913, he died in May, 1945, shortly after walking through the opened gates of the liberated concentration camp of Gunskirchen. Under the pseudonym "Vándor"—meaning "wanderer"—he published two volumes of poetry during his short life: Heads or Tails (1933) and Group Portrait (1938). His substantial poetic legacy of unpublished manuscripts was saved from the Nazis by his family, who emigrated to Australia in 1957, and is now appearing for the first time in its entirety in English translation.
