Visit with Magda Neni

This was written by Elana Kravitz (nee Zwick), Gyongyi Barany's very nice granddaughter. It is about her family's visit with Magda Klein-Rosenbaum (from Bátaszék and Bonyhád) few years ago written in very nice and sensitive style.

Shalom Reuven,
Just received these links to

1. photos of the Bonyhad Shoah Memorial

2. gathering in the old Neologue synagogue

* * * * * * * * * 

Earlier sent this:

Found the following two part video of the 2014 Bonyhad event (Holocaust memorial unveiling, exhibit and event in the old synagogue):


The first speaker was the mayor at the time. The talks were in Hungarian.

The man with skull cap by the monument, without much hair and who speaks in the synagogue is Ilan Mor, who was Israel's ambassador to Hungary.  He spoke in German - I assume because there are still many German speakers in town. (Ilan was our ambassador to Germany before assignment in Hungary)

Part II:

Man in gray suit and glasses is Andras Heisler, President of Hungary's main Jewish organization MAZSIHISZ.

Man with black suit and beard is Rabbi Pesach Singer (Jerusalem) - originally from Bonyhad.

The man in black is Herman Pasitka who planned the monument.

All the Best,
