Hungary SIG #Hungary Re: Budapest (Jewish?) Deaf School #hungary
Dear Diane,toggle quoted messageShow quoted text
My guess was that there were school yearbooks, as I know there were for a number of American and European schools for the deaf.Â I checked the online English and Hungarian dictionaries and deaf is siket and deaf-mute is siketnema.
If you search WorldCat at this public version:
and use those keywords and limit the years to 1855-1899, you get 1 journal and five books in Hungarian.Â I don't know Hungarian so I can't tell you if those would help.Â You could also extend the years of your search, or just wade through the books with siketnema in the title and look for something that appears to cover a historical period.
I hope this helps!
Also, there is a Facebook page for a school for the deaf in Budapest that goes back to 1902.Â Perhaps they may have some information about earlier schools: https://www.facebook.com/Hall%C3%A1ss%C3%A9r%C3%BCltek-Tanint%C3%A9zete-School-for-the-Deaf-150224568375528/info/?entry_point=page_nav_about_item&tab=overview
