allison's message
"My Hungarian heritage had long been a source of pride and an integral piece of who I was as a young American who, like so many others, comes from a diverse and eclectic family background. I felt my heritage when I looked at the pictures of my immigrant ancestors, heard the foreign words my relatives would mutter, and saw pictures of the rural place from where the Patakis originally came." (By our Ambassador, Allison Pataki)

The Countdown Has Begun for 21 New Participants!

Thanks to the only Hungarian birthright program, ReConnect Hungary, a new group of young Americans and Canadians will start their journey of a lifetime this June, to rediscover their Hungarian roots and enjoy all the wonders Hungary has to offer: landscape, culture, history, and modern innovations. Meet this year’s lucky participants and find out where they hail from!
