60th Anniversary Commemoration

Join us as we conclude our 60th Anniversary Commemoration  

of the events of Hungary 1956 with a Panel Discussion

Wednesday, January 25, 2017  

7 – 9pm

University of Houston-Downtown (UHD)  

One Main Street building, Floor – 10 North 

Room 1099 

The year 2016 marked the 60th anniversary of the modern-day David vs. Goliath struggle of the tiny country of Hungary versus then mighty Soviet Union. In the 1950’s, at a time when the Soviet Union seemed unbeatable, Hungarian students and workers led the fight for freedom against the occupying Soviet forces. For 13 days, Hungarian freedom fighters fought for independence as the world celebrated their bravery. But on November 4th, Soviet soldiers returned, and crushed the Revolution and with it Hungary’s hopes for freedom. However, because it showed for the first time, the true and terrible face of Communism to the world, it was also seen as a victory for Hungary. The Revolution of 1956 is widely acknowledged as the first nail in the coffin of Communism. As we wind down our photo exhibition commemorating the events of 1956 in partnership with University of Houston- Downtown, we invite you to join us for a panel discussion with Dr. Joseph Nagyváry, Dr. Ferenc Korompai, Mr. Miklos Oláh and Ms. Beatrix Manyai as they share their stories and experience from the events of 1956 and how the events impacted their lives.

 

Panelists include:
Dr. Joseph Nagyváry, MD, PhD
Dr. Ferenc Korompai, MD PhD, FACS
Mr. Miklos Oláh
Ms. Beatrix Manyai, MBA, MEd

Moderator:
Richard Graber, Interim Board Chair of the Hungarian American Cultural Association (HACA) of Houston.

This panel discussion is made possible through a partnership of The Hungarian American Cultural Association (HACA) of Houston and the University of Houston-Downtown with funding from the Hungary Initiatives Foundation.

Exhibit Opens in Houston to Commemorate 60th Anniversary of Hungarian Revolution of 1956

November 30, 2016 – Houston, Texas – “1956 HUNGARIAN FREEDOM FIGHT” a special photo exhibit, opened in Houston on the campus of University of Houston-Downtown (UHD) Thursday, November 30. The photo exhibit commemorates and celebrates the 1956 Revolution during this special anniversary year. More than 125 people joined in the commemoration and celebration, including a number of civic leaders from greater Houston.

Hungarian Honorary Consul General, Phillip Aronoff, introduced special guest from Hungary, Deputy Minister Laszlo Szabo, who stressed and encouraged the importance of a growing relationship between Hungary and the United States and even more specifically, Hungary and Houston, while highlighting the many similarities the two countries share. Council Member At-Large, Jack Christie, presented Szabo with a Mayoral Proclamation. Richard Graber, Director of the Hungarian American Cultural Association of Houston, invited guests to view the exhibit which includes photos never seen by the public.
 
Andrea Lauer Rice (Atlanta), Beth Secor (UHD) and Richard Graber curated the exhibit. Graber is planning additional programming with UHD in the form of a panel discussion later in January with individuals who will share their personal stories around the events of 1956. 

The exhibit runs through January 20, 2017:  8 am to 9 pm – Monday through Friday  
 
A portion of the exhibit was made possible by a grant from The Hungary Initiatives Foundation.

Welcome Sandra Jordan to the helm of the Hungarian American Cultural Association of Houston!

Sandra-Lee Jordan_rev

Tisztelt HACA-tagok, kedves barátaim!

Egy évvel ezelőtt jeleztem, hogy visszavonulok a HACA éléről és arra kértem Önöket, hogy segítsenek a szervezet következő elnökének a kiválasztásában. Bejelentésem óta azon munkálkodom, hogy zökkenőmentesen történjen meg a váltás; most elérkezett az idő arra, hogy az új elnök a szervezet munkáját továbbvigye.

Nagy örömömre szolgál, hogy Sandra Lee Jordan elvállalta a HACA vezetését. Az új elnök 2016 februárjától kezdi meg a tevékenységét. Sokan közülük Sandrát személyesen is ismerik, mivel számos rendezvényünkön vett részt. Anyjának tett ígéretéhez híven – ahhoz, hogy magyar örökségét őrízze meg és bontakozza ki – 4 évvel ezelőtt vált szervezetünk tagjává. Sandra magyar nagymamája az 1890-es években érkezett az Egyesült Államokba, és Sandra magyar származására mindig is nagyon büszke volt.
Sandra Jordan
Sandra segédügyvéd, 20 éve lakik Houstonban. Jelen foglalkozását megelőzően sok éven át matematikát és spanyol nyelvet tanított. Elképzeléseiról, a szervezet jövőjéről sokat beszélgetett velünk. Sandra lelkes és mélyen elkötelezett azért, hogy a HACA eredményes munkáját továbbvigye. Tudja, hogy ez nagyon sok munkát jelent, ezért Önök és a közösség – mind anyagi mind természetbeni – értékteremtő támogatására számít.

Kérem tartsanak velünk, köszöntsük együtt Sandrát új vezetői tisztségében! Üdvözlő fogadtatás Magyar fesztiválunkon, 2016. március 19-én!

Udvozlettel,
Gráber Richard

Dear Friends of HACA,

If you’ll recall, a number of months ago I had announced I was to be stepping down from the leadership of HACA and asked you as community members to assist me with identifying the next leader for this organization. Even before I did so, and to this very day, I have been working to transition the organization in a seamless way to the next leader in the hope that she/he would take the organization to the next level.

I’m so pleased to share that Sandra -Lee Jordan has been invited to consider and has agreed to the leadership of the Hungarian American Cultural Association of Houston effective February 2016. Many of you know Sandra as she has attended many of our events throughout the years. She joined HACA four years ago, promising her mother to carry on her Magyar heritage. Sandra’s grandmother came to the states in late 1890’s, and Sandra has taken a particular interest in getting more acquainted with her Magyar ancestry. (pictured above)

Sandra is a paralegal by profession and has lived in the Houston area for over 20 years. Before becoming a paralegal, Sandra spent many years as a teacher teaching both math and Spanish. Sandra has spent a considerable amount of time discussing her visions for the organization and is very enthusiastic about taking your organization to the next level. She realizes that this will take a tremendous amount of work and is looking to you the community for your continued support and involvement – both financially and as ambassadors for HACA in the community.

Please join me in welcoming Sandra to the helm of HACA and we’ll plan on seeing you on March 19th – details to follow!

Sincerely,
Richard Graber
