Debrecenji (Brunner), Jožef


DEBRECENJI (Brunner), JOŽEF (1905– ), Yugoslav author and editor. Born in Budapest, Debrecenji began his career on the editorial staff of several Hungarian newspapers and periodicals. He spent World War ii in concentration camps, an experience that strongly influenced his postwar writings. From 1945 Debrecenji became a full-time writer in Belgrade, publishing poems, short stories, novels, and literary criticism. His outstanding work, Hladni krematorijum ("The Cold Crematorium," 1951), first appeared in Hungarian as Hideg krematórium (1950). Debrecenji's later works, studies of human destiny in troubled times, include the drama Smena ("The Shift," 1953), and collections of short stories such as Neverovatno leto ("The Incredible Summer," 1955) and Ljudsko meso ("Human Flesh," 1962) which first appeared in Hungarian.

Citation styles gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:
