Reunion of Hungarian Jews Planned

Download PDF for this date

A Congress of Hungarian Jews is being organized for Jerusalem in April, 1984.

The organizing committee here in Jerusalem said this week the Jerusalem International convention of Hungarian Jews would aim “to reunite a community shattered by Nazi persecution and to highlight its thousand year old heritage and great contributions to European culture. The date will mark the fortieth anniversary of the Nazis attempted destruction of all Hungarian Jewry.

Leading former Hungarian Jews will be invited, famous names in many disparate fields. Parallel to the convention the diaspora museum will dedicate an exhibition on prewar Hungarian Jewry.
