Long Description:
František Gellner was born to a poor Jewish family in Mladá Boleslav (Jungbunzlau), Bohemia. His father was a seller and a keen socialist. His student room above his father’s shop was the place of his first writing attempts – he covered the walls with his provocative poems and caricatures.[1] He studied at the gymnasium in Mladá Boleslav where he contributed to the student journals Lípa, Lucerna, Pêle-Mêle and Mládí with poems, translations and drawings. He went to Vienna to study at the Polytechnic Institute but left after two years with just one exam in drawing.
At the beginning of World War I Gellner was recruited to the Austro-Hungarian army and went to Galicia. The last report about him was that he was relaxing on a path between Zamosc and Tomaszów. On September 13, 1914 he was claimed missing and never found.
