Bethe replies: Maria Ronay is correct. Edward Teller did not have to leave Hungary in 1926. He left voluntarily to get a science education in Germany. Jewish business was flourishing in Hungary at that time, and for many years thereafter. But a science career could only be had outside Hungary. In this sense, Teller felt (as he mentioned in his memoirs) that he was exiled from Hungary in 1926, and then, for quite different reasons, from Germany in 1933.
