Re: Jewish Hungarian baron? #Hungary
As for the specific question ( how and where titles were given) I don’t know .
But , I heard from my late father , there were Jews who had titles in Hungary .
My father grew up in Ujpest ( now the 4th quarter of Budapest ) which was a city with 20,000 Jewish inhabitants.
It was an affluent community , there was a family that had a title Baron , they had a large leather factory .
It was said 30,000 people worked there in one shift and that the railway branched into the factory and they had their own freight train station .
