Eminent Hungarians

 

Krisztián Nyáry

This book praises Hungarian heroes of earlier generations in the hope that it contributes to the raising of new cohorts of ordinary citizens who will perform extraordinary deeds of daily heroism, of compassion and caring for others, of standing up and speaking out against injustice, and taking wise and effective action in support of humanity—in all its forms.
The eleven heroes in this engaging book come from many backgrounds. Some of them have acquired fame across the world like György Cziffra, the pianist, or László Papp, three times Olympic champion in boxing, and Ignác Semmelweis, a 19th century pioneer in antiseptic procedures in medicine. And there are a few who are little known even among their compatriots and have gained their deserved notoriety thanks to the highly popular Hungarian original of Nyáry’s book. The personalities include an oil explorer, a writer, a physician, a translator, a horse-breeder, a swimmer, a colonel, and a bishop.
One thing is common about all the eleven individuals: they should serve as inspiring role-models for everyone, young and old, men and women alike.
