World War II
After the Fall of France, Hajdu became active in the Résistance movement. Numerous Jewish Hungarians, most of them artists and writers, were part of the Résistance. Many carried out their actions outside Paris, as foreigners had been formally evacuated with the outbreak of war in September 1939.
Hajdú died in Bagneux, Hauts-de-Seine.
