Pannonian Values – The Jews of Körmend – Special Video Recommendation by Edit Szántóné Balázs

Jews have settled in Körmend since as early as the early 1300s, however, the “modern” community got its start in the early 1700s, starting with about 7 families. The community grew over time, probably reaching a high of about 740 individuals as of 1869 when the community voted to become a Neolog congregation. By the late 1930s, the community had diminished to about 320 people. A few people returned after the war, but by 1960, there were no Jews left in Körmend.

The book will be available in August by FTI-iASK.
