This is the corrected version of my earlier reply for Eva's inquiry (The former one had mistakes so I've deleted it):
Eva, thank you for your inquiry. I try to reply briefly: Áron TAMÁSI (in the Western name order) was a well-known Hungarian writer. This photo shows the memorial of Tamási in his native village, Farkaslaka (present-day Lupeni, Romania), depicting the heroes of his novels. He became well-known in his native region of Transylvania and in Hungary for his stories written in his original Székely style (Hungarian people born in Transylvania are named "Székely") Tamási emigrated to the United States in 1923, soon after Transylvania became part of Romania. He wrote his first Hungarian-language novels there, and these were soon published in Cluj, to widespread acclaim. He returned home in 1926 and lived here until 1944. One of Tamási's most famous works from this period was a novel trilogy about the adventures of a Székely boy called Ábel, a young forest ranger living alone in the Hargita Mountains. Tamási moved to Budapest in 1944, and lived there until his death in 1966. At his request, he was buried in Székely Land.
This memorial is made by two excellent Hungarian sculptors, Jenő and Tibor Szervátiusz. Greetings, Miklós
