On September 26, 2023 the second season of our research group’s public lecture series was launched by Victor Karády historical sociologist and professor emeritus. Among other topics, the openness of late 18th-early 19th century Austro-Hungary towards Jewish immigration and its demogrpahic reasons, Jewish integration during the Gründerzeit, assimilation and the decline of acceptance towards Jews over time were discussed. The talk was followed by a lively debate on whether or not the history of Hungarian Jewry -or of any other social group in history – can be considered as unique.
