Albert Kardos

KARDOS, ALBERT (1861–1945), literary scholar and historian. Headmaster of the Debrecen Jewish high school, Kardos was an expert on 16th-century Hungarian literature. Even in his eighties, victimized by the Nazis, he continued his literary work. Two important products of his research were A XVI század lírai költészete ("Lyric Poetry of the 16th Century," 1883) and a history of Hungarian literature (1892). He died after deportation.
