Emery Barcs -- 1905-1990
Emery Barcs (born Imre Bruchsteiner) was a Hungarian Jewish journalist who escaped to Australia in 1938 -- fleeing Fascist persecution. He seems to have acquired English easily and in my youth I often read newspaper articles by him. He was especially informative about the Communist world. Something he wrote in 1961 will ring a bell: "Under Communism if theory clashes with facts then it's just too bad for the facts".
As a belated acknowledgement of my debt to him, I have just put 12 of his old newspaper articles online -- written between 1950 and 1970. There are no other articles of his online that I know of -- though diligent mining of Trove might turn up something. See my collection of his articles here. If he had been pro-Communist, every word he ever wrote would already be online, of course.
