Extremely Hungarian

Posted on Thursday, June 4th, 2009.

Last week our community outreach department brought us to the Hungarian Cultural Center, for the first of a series of Door-to-Door days to celebrate Extremely Hungary, a year-long festival celebrating Hungarian art and culture in the U.S.

The Cultural Center and the Hungarian Consulate (where we conducted the recordings) brought in a diverse and fascinating group of Hungarians, including Evi Blaikie, a child survivor of the Holocaust. Evi brought with her a book (pictured below) she wrote about her mother, whom she was separated from as a toddler, and later reunited with.


We look forward to recording more stories at Extremely Hungary this weekend in New Brunswick, New Jersey!
