October 22, Saturday afternoon, saw our Museum members and volunteers welcome a full house of visitors who came to celebrate the opening of our "Spirit of Freedom" exhibit. This special exhibit features the images and story of the 1956 Hungarian Uprising, and the Hungarian-American community of Cleveland joined Hungarians around the world to commemorate the 60th anniversary of this momentous event. Edith Lauer, Board member and president Emerita of the Hungarian American Coalition, and a "56er" herself, gave the keynote presentation, followed by personal recollections of "56ers" in the audience. The program also included portions from the Memory Project, a visual history archive produced by Réka Pigniczky and Andrea Lauer Rice.As with all our programs and exhibit opening, our visitors were able to chat with our presenters, view the exhibit, and taste Hungarian savory and sweet snakes as well as some wine. If you have not had a chance to visit the Museum to see this special exhibit, consider making it a stop on your next visit to Downtown Cleveland!Read more...
Mikulás Bácsi visited the Hungarian Museum to the delight of children young and old. But before he arrived, our young visitors had the opportunity to enjoy a wonderful puppet show, and to work at many many hands-on activities that helped them learn about our Hungarian culture.
