Hungarian writer Imre Kertész has died. Kertész lived under Nazi occupation, was deported to Auschwitz-Berkenau and, after surviving the war, lived under communism in Hungary. He won the Nobel Prize for Literature in 2002.
Imre Kertész survived Auschwitz as a teenager. The Nobel Prize in Literature laureate described the horrors of the concentration camps in his novels. Still, he was fascinated by Germany's cultural history.
It's a feast of thousands: The annual Nobel Banquet on December 10. While the prize itself has stayed much as it was intended, the banquet has had to change since the first one in 1901. But it still beats a bag of chips.
