ReConnected Participant Testimonials

Madison Jones, RH'19

This program has given me the opportunity to have a more thorough experience of Hungarian culture than if I would have traveled by myself.
 
It was incredible exploring Hungary and I really appreciated getting to know my roots and meeting others that were on the same path. I loved the architecture and unique history. Some places were older than any other place I've ever been. Seeing some of my family's last names at the Holocaust Memorial was an extremely moving experience. My identity was reinforced on this journey as I met my family and saw where they lived on our free weekend. I realized citizenship is a real option for me and I look forward to returning.

My whole life I felt like we were missing pieces to our Hungarian heritage. The only things passed down through the generations were the food and some family stories. After this trip, I feel like I got to fill in those gaps. I have a better sense of what it means to be Hungarian-American and I feel a stronger connection to my great grandfather.
