Megmaradásunk kulcsai: vallásunk és kultúránk megőrzése

Hungarian Congress 2007 - videos online (more videos also listed on page)

 

KÜLDETÉS / MISSION:

A Magyar Társaság küldetése:

A Magyar Társaság kulturális szervezet magyar véreink összefogása céljából. A Magyar Társaság erősen folytatni kívánja 50+ éves célkitűzéseit, az emigrációban is tudatos magyarok legyünk, segítsük egymást minden vonalon, fogjunk össze, legyünk társadalmának vezető szellemi elitje.

Mission of the Hungarian Association:

The Hungarian Association is a cultural organization sponsoring an annual Congress providing a forum for the discussion of issues impacting Hungarian Americans and offering educational, literary, artistic and informative lectures by members of the North American Hungarian Community. The Hungarian Association supports the publication of an annual book, the Kronika,  collecting together presentations given at the Hungarian Congress as well as other articles of interest. It also recognizes members of the Hungarian North American community who either did outstanding volunteer work or deserve recognition for their work as authors, artists or scientists. The Association reaches out to the Hungarian North American Community with sponsorships and other activities in pursuit of its cultural mission. Officers and Board - Vezérkari tagok

Krónika - The Chronicles of the Hungarian Congress:

For 48 consecutive years, the Hungarian Association has published an annual book which encompasses the proceedings of the annual congress of the Hungarian scientific, literary and artistic association and includes papers presented by Hungarian scientists, writers and artists in the Western world. For 43 years, it has also served as the annual yearly journal of the Árpád Academy, which is the professional honorary society representing distinguished Hungarians in the Western world. In addition, the book contains material of interest and relevance to the purpose of the Hungarian Association and related to the topics of the Hungarian Congress. A large number of photos are also included in books published in at least the last decade. Typically, it has been in the range of 288 to 320 pages in a fine red bound edition with gold imprint. Recent editions vary from this while maintaining a characteristic format and look.

This series uniquely chronicles the thinking of Hungarians outside of Hungary in this half century timespan and is thus a truly singular and invaluable resource for understanding the Hungarian experience in the diaspora. It was edited until 1995, for 34 consecutive years, by Professor Dr. Ferenc Somogyi, and since then by Lél F. Somogyi.

Krónika XLVIII (Volume 48), representing the Hungarian Congress held in November 2008, has been published and is available directly from the Hungarian Association (for US $20.00 inclusive of shipping in the USA, and for US $25.00 inclusive of shipping elsewhere in the world.)

Krónika editions from many prior years are available for the same pricing. Contact Lél Somogyi, Editor of the Krónika and Secretary-General of the Árpád Academy, at the address LelSomogyi@HungarianAssociation.com for information and specifics about ordering.

Krónika Online - The Chronicles of the Hungarian Congress:

 

The Krónika volumes have previously only been available in printed book format. Starting in 2010, the complete contents of the Krónika - The Chronicles of the Hungarian Congress from prior years will be made available online, starting with the content of the most recent volumes, then working back to the earliest volumes.

 

Additionally, select articles and materials that were not published in the book version of the Krónika will be made available exclusively online. The intention is to make available a greater range of valuable content online where the material is accessible to a world-wide audience, unconstrained by the costs and logistics of physical book publishing.

 

As articles become available online, it will be possible to access them from links in the Table of Contents document for each Krónika.

 

The Table of Contents for Krónika XLVIII (48) can be viewed at this link.

The Table of Contents for Krónika XLVII (47) can be viewed at this link.

Changing Attitudes: Raising Children in a Dual Culture
by Judit and Pál Szentkirályi (reprinted by permission of the authors)

This article on raising children in a dual culture gives insight, information and useful tips on raising children in a bilingual environment, giving solid reasons for early muliple language training, and spells out clearly defined benefits.  It dispels common myths about bilingualism and gives facts based on the latest research. It serves as a useful resource for families trying to understand and explain the benefits of encouraging the nurturing of multiple cultures and languages. It was originally published by the authors in August 2006 and is reprinted here with their permission. Copyright © 2006 by the authors.

Papi Through My Eyes: RECOLLECTIONS BY A SON OF WASS ALBERT

by Brigadier General Huba Wass de Czege, US Army Retired (reprinted by permission of the author)

Here is the full text in PDF form of "Papi Through My Eyes: Recollections by a Son of Wass Albert," a nearly 60 page English language article by Huba Wass de Czege prompted by his participation in the XLVII Hungarian Congress in Cleveland, OH in November, 2007.  In it, he writes: "This English version is prompted by my participation in the XLVII Hungarian American Congress in Cleveland, Ohio on 23 and 24 November 2007, which was to a great extent dedicated to commemorating my father’s work in America in behalf of the Hungarians left behind the Iron Curtain. This work is to satisfy an immediate, and sincere interest in Papi’s life, and how we viewed his life and work within the Hungarian American community." And in a letter to Dr. John Nádas, President of the Hungarian Association, he wrote: "You may find it useful to circulate this among the interested Hungarians in America to inform them better of our relationship to our father and to counter the false stories circulating. I think many of the people who were present at the Congress would read it." -- Lél F. Somogyi, editor
