In this episode I continue my conversation with Andrea Lauer Rice about the impact of the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 in Budapest, Hungary and Memory Project.
Andrea Lauer Rice and Réka Pigniczky co-founded Memory Project, a community-wide initiative, in 2015. Both daughters of 1956-ers, Andrea and Réka have known each other for the past 20 years. Memory Project is their joint project to help document and record the personal stories of Hungarians who emigrated to the United States after the Hungarian Revolution of 1956 and as displaced persons after World War II. Within the past several years, they expanded their outreach to include Hungarian Americans with fascinating stories about their upbringing and other inspirational and unique interviews with Hungarians across the world.
