Announcement from Josef Hollos, President CEC
Josef Hollos has announced that our good old Hungarian theatre friend Lajos Máté, for many years the Hungarian representative in AITA/IATA and CEC, passed away this morning, Friday 29 October 2011 at the age of 83.
Lajos was for a many of us a shining example of a fighter for professionalism in amateur-theatre; a man always building bridges between systems and contradictory philosophies; a man with wit and great humour; a big actor and director.
Our AITA/IATA and CEC theatre-world and the members and friends of the Hungarian National Centre and his family will miss him greatly. We will keep him in our memories.
