Jewish-Hungarian author Imre Kertész (born November 9, 1929) was the winner of the Nobel Prize in Literature in 2002 "for writing that upholds the fragile experience of the individual against the barbaric arbitrariness of history". His writings describe his experiences as a sixteen-year-old boy in the Auschwitz concentration camp. Among his writings translated into English is Kaddish for a Child Not Born (Kaddis a meg nem született gyermekért).
