Norbert Haklik

NORBERT HAKLIK (Ózd, 1976), writer and critic, studied Hungarian and English literature and linguistics in Budapest. He is the author of two short story compilations (A Mennybemeneteli Iroda [Salvation Agency], 1998, 2013; Világvége Gömörlúcon [The World’s End in Gömörlúc], 2001), a novel (Big Székely Só [Big Szekler Show], 2006), and several translations from English into Hungarian. His latest work Egy Duna-regény anatómiája (The anatomy of a Danube-novel), 2013 is a set of literary essays that entirely focuses on Thomas Kabdebo’s novel trilogy Danubius Danubia, just like the work published in the present issue of Hungarian Review. Haklik currently lives in Brno (the Czech Republic), with his wife and daughter, and – besides his 9-to-5 job as a manager for a global IT company – is working on a new short story collection.

The refusal allowed the Polish government and tens of thousands of military personnel to escape to Hungary and Romania. By the end of that year 140,000 Poles had found asylum in Hungary…"
