Mission of the Hungarian
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

Krónika – a magyar határokon kívüli és száműzetésben élő magyarság 50
A XLIX-L Krónikát 2011-ben adjuk ki, amely a 2009-es és 2010-es
Magyar Kongresszusi eseményeit foglalja magában.
Ez lesz az utolsó nyomtatásban kiadott Krónika. A jövőben a Magyar
Társaság honlapján jelenik majd meg.
A Magyar Társaság fél évszázada adja ki a Krónikát könyv formában,
amely a kongresszusi műsort, az elhangzott és beküldött előadások
szövegeit, valamint a Nyugati magyar tudósok, írok, és művészek
Ez a különleges értékes könyvsorozat nagyon értékes képet nyújt a
magyar életről a számkivetésben.
A Krónikát 1995-ig 34 egymást követő éven át
Professor dr. Somogyi Ferenc, majd fia Somogyi F. Lél,
Sok-sok fényképet és cikket közölt. Ugyancsak közétették a
könyvsorozatban, amelyek általában 288-320 oldalon elegáns píros
kötésben, arany nyomásban jelentek meg.
Az utolsó számokban a formája részben megváltozott, de a minősége
Eddig csak nyomtatott formában volt kapható a Krónika. Ettől az
évtől kezdve, az egész szorozatót megjelentetjük a honlapunkon,
kezdve a legújabb könyvvel.
Ráadásul, anyagok, amelyek nem voltak kaphatok könyvformában ezután
a honlapunkon elektronikusan jelentetjük meg.
A célunk a legszélesebb körnek eljuttatni a Magyar Kongresszus
előadási anyagát, hogy minél többen hozzáférhessenek világszerte,
könyvkiadási és szállítási korlátok nélkül.
books – Documenting a half-century
A combined Krónika
XLIX.-L. (Volume 49-50) is being published in 2011, representing the
Hungarian Congresses held in November 2009 and November 2010. This
will be the last Krónika printed in book form. Future volumes will
not be printed, but the Krónika will be published online with
pictures and articles.
from some prior years are 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. Check for availability.
For half a century,
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. 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.
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.
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.
Online – The Continuing Chronicles of the Hungarian Congress
The Krónika volumes
have previously only been available in printed book format. Starting
in 2011, 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.
select articles and materials not published in book format 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.

Editor of the Krónika and Secretary-General of the Árpád Academy, at
the address LelSomogyi@HungarianAssociation.com or at (440 843-3970

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

of encouraging the nurturing of multiple cultures and languages.

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."

An article about the Novels of Áron
20th-century writer Áron Gábor, a direct descendant, is hardly known
in Budapest literary circles but he was widely read in émigré
communities. Perusing any reasonably educated émigré’s bookshelf in
the 1970’s and 1980’s, whether in Buenos Aires, Sydney, Vienna, New
Brunswick, Toronto, New York, Cleveland or Los Angeles, one would
have found the usual assortment of classics, Arany, Gárdonyi and
Petőfi, as well as the 20th-century Albert Wass, József Nyírő, Tibor
Tollas, Sándor Márai, and of course Áron Gábor. (Read the complete
