ReConnected Participant Testimonials

Allison Dempsey, RH'17

“It's nearly impossible for me to summarize Reconnect Hungary 2017 in just a few words. Being able to spend two and a half weeks exploring my great-grandfather's homeland and city with my brother in tow was an honor and a privilege.

Through a combination of lectures and sightseeing, we were able to explore Hungary's vibrant and diverse culture and politics in a way that would have been inaccessible to us had we visited on our own. Reconnect Hungary was an endlessly valuable experience for me, and my only regret is that we weren't able to have more time there.”

Lucy Kosty, RH'21

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.
