Hungary SIG #Hungary Going to school in Budapest in 1944 - 1945 for Jewish children #hungary

Eva Floersheim <evaflor@...>

Trying to piece together the memories of my friend Gyorgi Pollak, born 1936
in Budapest, I would like your help in pinpointing
a) the date Jewish children could no longer go to elementary school in
Budapest after the German occupation in March 1944. Was it in April, May or
June? Was there an exact date, which seems likely in this case?
b) the date Jewish children started school again after the liberation of
Pest on January 18th or 19th 1945. Was it already in January, or in February
or March? Was there an exact date, which seems less likely in this case?

One woman told us that though the Jewish children did not go to school for
around 8 - 10 months, they continued the next school year, catching up.
Other experiences?

When did/does the school year start in Hungary - in August or September

Thank you.
