Magyar Zsido Lexikon On-Line #hungary

Vivian Kahn

Dear Friends,

I was prowling the internet today and was astounded to find that a
searchable digital version of Peter Ujvari's 1929 Magyar Zsido
Lexikon is now on-line at Magyar Elektronikus Konyvtar [Hungarian
Electronic Library] . Click on <
index.htm> to find this resource.

The website and the document are both in Hungarian. While it's not
difficult to find entries, translating them is another issue. You
can browse the entire work by clicking on Cimlap or go to http:// and find the name of
the person or place you are researching. Click on "oldalkep" in the
column on the right and you will find the page where the entry appears.

There have been postings about this marvelous website in the past
but I didn't realize that this work, which is an important source of
information about pre-WWII Hungarian Jewish culture and history was
fully available on-line.

Happy hunting!
