Buda Gulyas

Synopsis

Renowned novelist Imre Kertesz won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2002 for Fateless, which follows the extraordinary story of Gyorgy Koves, a Jewish boy from Budapest, who finds himself increasingly alone as the terrible events of World War II unfold around him. His father is sent off to a labour camp, and Gyorgy himself volunteers to go to a camp in Germany, convinced that his life will be safer there. At the concentration camp, Gyorgy conforms and survives, taking the realities of camp life for granted, and treating it as an everyday existence not unlike any other. Gyorgy finds that even among the cruelties of camp life, there are genuine moments of happiness.
