when did Anna find out she was Jewish?
Ayelet Blit
46:46
How did she found out she was Jewish? Why?
Lionel Moses
46:59
Was George Jewish?
Lawrence Kaplan
47:06
Said she was ten. Standard. A Hungarian friend found out when she was 12.
Viktoria Dorosz

how old is Anna?
Susan Mayer
47:46
My older cousin, a German refugee from just before the war, told me that she was just learning Hebrew in Palestine when her oldest son was a toddler. If she spoke to the baby in German on the bus or street, people would glare at her and make nasty comments. It was terrible for her -- she barely knew Hebrew, and yet she couldn't speak anything else to her toddler in public.
Deborah

What was Anna's background that led her to become a leader in the founding of the day school? Was she a Jewish educator and, if so, where did she attain her knowledge?
Kitty Hoffman
52:19
My mother was a survivor from Poland, and would have had exactly the same reaction. I can so relate to that facial expression…

Anna's notebooks should be archived so that future generations have the resource to understand the development of Jewish education in post-war Hungary.

Budapest was a transfer station for the Soviet Jews going to Israel in 1991. I was there representing Orange County CA and hosted the Director of the JDC. he was so proud to take me on a Jewish tour of Budapest
Sheri Morrison

I missed the connection to how everyone knew they were candlesticks before she opened the box.
Mitchel Slomiak
01:12:49
I missed the candlestick connection as well….
Beverly Jacobs
01:13:14
oops! hosted BY the JDC. it was exciting to see thriving Jewish schools, etc, and even a hevrah Kadisha camps, etc.
Randi Brenowitz
01:15:15
Since Ana did not know Shabbat Shalom at the beginning, she told every new first grade class on the first Kabbalat Shabbat of the school year how she did not know and even she had to learn. Then she would light the candles. So everyone at the school heard the Rachel story many times and knew how connected Ana and Rachel were to Shabbat Shalom/lighting the candles
Sheri Morrison
01:15:35
OK, thanks.
Mitchel Slomiak
01:15:39
Thanks, Randi!

Can we buy the current year calendar? How?
lauren shachar
01:28:32
Every once in a while I'm amazed at the power of the Communist era, in which so many Jews were denied and then lost their connections to their past.
Marion Stein
01:28:47
i would be interested in buying a calendar too.
Sheri Morrison
01:28:55
Randi & Susan, I love your connection to today’s session! Perfect!

Wondering when this was written. “Stand by me” by Ben E King was composed in the early 60’s as I recall, which is so interesting because I’m sure they wouldn’t have known of one another.

What an extraordinary story. I too almost skipped it — and I am so happy I did not. Kol hakavod for this amazing work — a true testament to the power of education, and dedication. I have several friends with Hungarian roots, and some even were children in post-Shoah Hungary. I will send them to the video of this session. All good wishes.
