Andre Kertesz

A recent book using a cover photograph by Andre Kertesz (Meudon, c. 1928) is, "The Great Escape, Nine Jews Who Fled Hitler and Changed The World." Author is Kati Marton; published by Simon & Schuster in 2006. The subjects were all Hungarian Jews, one writer (Koestler), two involved in motion pictures (Korda and Cutiz), two still photographers (Kertesz and Capa) and four scientists (Teller, von Neumann, Szilard, and Wigner).

I was directed to your interesting site by my good friend, Joseph Jachna.
