Well... That doesnt sound too bad... a good plausible theory. In this case from Italy directly... because nobody was in Vienna at that time... Stern and Simon were in Budapest...Originally Posted by 4E524F4F58534954535C5E525B5B58583D0 link=1260377965/100#100 date=1264128606
Note: If its the case... im sure Judith will find the Buying Contracts. Desider Stern was a Espresso Coffee maker in his business life. But Private, he had a Hobby and a Vision (a bit like us, right?)... He was collecting books, papers, letters, documents... about jewish litterature in german language mainly and his correspondence with these authors... as he gave his collection to the House of Litterature (note: his first collection of books, he had to leave behind him in 1933), the entire Collection fitted in 134 Folders of about 30.000 documents containing 10.500 names. Gi-gan-tic!!! So, i do not worry about his personal papers... he would keep them for sure.... it is just that there is probably "millions" of it. On the Youtube videos, you can see there are some documents displayed in the windows (is it a Advertising for the E Lucullus?).
yep... I said already i would only affirm information if we have proof about it... for me the fact that its on the Stella catalog is a very important fact... but i would rather have Venus showing me papers about it... maybe Imre Simon was the head of Qualital? maybe they had to write Qualital on it to promote hungarian aluminium industry? maybe Qualital and Stella produced machines parallel, how long? Was Qualital a registered mark - registered under Imre Simon?Originally Posted by 4E524F4F58534954535C5E525B5B58583D0 link=1260377965/100#100 date=1264128606
Could a foreigner (Stern was a German Jew: Breslau (now Wroclaw) was a German town in 1907) *create a Factory in Communist Hungary at that time?
I dont believe in Wikipedia, but its practical sometimes: Hungary after WW2:
"Following the fall of Nazi Germany, Soviet troops occupied all of the country and through their influence Hungary gradually became a communist satellite state of the Soviet Union. Many of the communist leaders of 1919 returned from Moscow. After 1948, Communist leader Mátyás Rákosi established Stalinist rule in the country complete with forced collectivization and planned economy. Mátyás Rákosi now attempted to impose authoritarian rule on Hungary."
