“Made in Hungary” Talk October 8th at BJCC

With Maria Krenz

A hidden child during the Holocaust, the daughter of Jews who had “officially” converted but remained Jewishly identified, Maria Krenz spent three years as a nun before embarking on a journey that led to her life in America as a Quaker who still feels Jewish to her soul. The author of an upcoming memoir of her childhood and family in Budapest during the Holocaust and the Communist occupation, Krenz’ personal story is interwoven with the historical events from the time Jews received Hungarian citizenship and the roots of growing anti-Semitism, as well as the  Communist takeover, post-war anti Jewish sentiment and finally the Hungarian uprising of 1956.

About Staff

Staff
They call me "NewsHound Too," because I'm sniffing out stories all over the Boulder area. My buddies know me as "Rocky." I love Jewish holidays because the food is GREAT, especially the brisket. Well all the food. I was adopted from the Humane Society of Boulder Valley and have many friends there also looking for homes.
