Judit Kováts


A widely published historian and archivist before becoming a writer, Judit Kováts is the author of novels based on oral history interviews and informed by her scholarly work. Her themes are the relatively little-known historical traumas of the twentieth century: the predicament of Hungarian women at the time of the Russian occupation in 1945 (Denied, 2012); of ethnic Hungarians in the Czechoslovakia of the 1940s and 1950s (Severed, 2015); and the expulsion of ethnic Germans from Czechoslovakia after World War II (Expelled, 2019).
