CSERMELY, GYULA (1869–1939), Hungarian author. Csermely abandoned his law practice to write novels, plays, and short stories. Many of these have Jewish settings and deal with the conflict of the generations and the damaging effects of assimilation. They include Ami két Miatyánk között van ("Between Two 'Lord's Prayers,'" 1925), Juda ben Tábbaj kulcsa ("The Key of Judah ben Tabbai," 1927), and Szent védekezés ("Holy Defense," 1938).
