The Past, Present, and Future of the Rural Hungarian Jewry


For several years, the Tom Lantos Institute has been contributing to the implementation of rural Jewish culture and history projects.
For the fifth consecutive year, TLI is supporting the annual ’Day of Remembrance’ of the Jewish community of Sátoraljaújhely. This year, a short film was produced documenting the remembrance events, which can be accessed via this link.

Tibor Schatteles’ book, “The Jews of Timișoara: A Historical Perspective,” depicting the history of the local Jewish community from the Ottoman rule to post-World War II socialism, has been translated into Hungarian. It will be published this year, with the support of the Tom Lantos Institute, under the Hungarian title “A Temesvári Zsidóság – történelmi távlatkép”. The book launch will take place online.
