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)

2016 Hungarian Birthright Trip Participants Return from Hungary

After two weeks of indelible experiences and impressions of their ancestors' land, participants of the 2016 ReConnect Hungary birthright trip returned to their home communities inspired to further delve into their cultural heritage. Photos of their journey can be found in our Photo Gallery and Facebook, while Hungarian media coverage of the trip can be found here and on our YouTube channel.

Want to find your inner Hungarian next summer? Applications for the 2017 program will open this fall, so follow us on Facebook or Twitter for updates!
