Hungary SIG #Hungary Re: h-sig digest: April 23, 2011 Commemoration Days in Hungary #hungary

I would like to urge all those h-siggers who have a trip planned to =20
Hungary between Mid-may and mid July to try to attend a commemoration =20
event; if one is not taking place in "your" town then perhaps one =20
nearby.

I will not dwell on the support you would be providing to the local =20
Jewish community; the current situation in Hungary has been documented =20
in several newspapers in the West. The message that people far away =20
care enough to attend and have not forgotten the deportation and =20
murder of half a million Hungarian Jews is very powerful.

>from the genealogical perspective, I cannot emphasize enough that =20
with boots on the ground and an open heart an attentive mind, you are =20
guaranteed to discover things you could not possibly have found on the =20
internet or in North American Archives(not that these sources are not =20
invaluable).

>from being there and talking to people I have been fortunate to gain =20
or sometimes confirm information that I could not have received in any =20
other way. I have also made many friends and acquaintances. And there =20
likely will be people attending a commemoration event whom you would =20
not meet on a regular visit to a town.

So whether >from a Holocaust remembrance or genealogical perpective, =20
this year or next, the value of attending such an event cannot be =20
over-emphasized.
