Lajos was born in 1916 in Hungary, and grew up with Dutch foster parents in Amsterdam after the Great War. This was arranged for orphans by the Red Cross; his foster father was an artist, restorer and collector. Lajos worked as a laboratory assistant at the University of Amsterdam during the German occupation and directly after World War II, and later qualified as a teacher. He was a member of the Dutch Entomological Society from 1942 and developed his entomological expertise and interests at the Zoological Museum of Amsterdam.
