Budapest, the capital of Hungary, has one of the most fascinating Jewish cultures and history in Europe. It is a community that still flourishes in spite of the many difficulties it has had throughout its long history. I would like to invite you to an interactive conversation, where I will share with you stories about this community, from the time of the Austrian empire, through the Holocaust and the communist era until our present time. I will do this through a bit of historical context, several images, and by sharing my own family stories. As part of the generation that was born at the end of the communist era, raised in the hopeful 90s and 2000s, I have had my own personal journey through understanding my family’s background, the stories of my grandparents who have survived the holocaust, those of my parents who grew up in communism, and all the other stories from which I gradually started to build my own identity. The experience will be the virtual adaptation of my offline tour, which you can learn about and see its reviews here: https://www.airbnb.hu/experiences/181441.
If you would like to attend, but the times don't work for you, please feel free to reach out to me, and I will do my best to make your requested times happen!
