Zeiss in Hungary (History)

Published in Spring 1990  Zeiss Historica Journal

Author: Nicholas Grossman

See Page 15 – 17.

The author was born in Hungary and journeyed back to the city of Györ where Zeiss created a small factory and repair shop to address the needs of what was in 1911, the Austro-Hungarian Empire.  It was decided that to have that factory there would ease the process of serving that country’s military market.

Products there were marked inside the trademarked lens cell:  Zeiss Karoly Györ. The author was able to access the archives of the director of the county and so translated pertinent documents into English inside this text.
