Dr. Kate Laurenszky
Our team is a small, well selected group of Jewish guides,whose aim is not only to let you learn about the history of Hungarian Jews,but also to give you an insight to the present of the Hungarian Jewry. This team has been hand-picked by Dr Kate Laurenszky; That’s me.
I am a typical member of the “lost generation” of Hungarian Jews. Born shortly after the Holocaust, raised with no religion,(as my parents were trying to keep me safe),realizing my Jewishness only as a teenager,learning to be Jewish more from my children than my elders…and there is more.We can discuss all this in person
.My tours are all custom made,and you will learn a lot. Not only that, you will be entertained,and introduced to everyday concerns too. I am very actíve in many Jewish causes,and know ” everyone and everything”(Oh and I am quite modest as well) If you don’t like being lectured, but do enjoy a good laugh, I am your natural choice. Write, phone or e-mail me, and let’s plan a great holiday for you!
Do you remember Dolly Levi from the film Hello Dolly?How she ran around handing her cars to everyone claiming she can make all their dreams come true? Well that’s me all over! You only have to tell me what you are interested in,
and Presto! It’s done!
So what keeps you from picking that phone up and making that call to me?
Go ahead, just do it!

Or else, send me an e mail! Others did this before you, and that’s how I got really lucky, and had a chance to show around Jewish Budapest a great , sweet and funny lady…
YES you are right! These pictures show me with my favorite actress, Goldie Hawn, during her visit to Budapest.
This picture was taken in front of the main entrance of the largest synagogue of Europe. The ladies working here, are all Goldie Hawn’s enthusiastic fans, and yes, she is just as sweet and unpretentious in real life as on the silver screen!
You want to find your roots? These people wanted to do just that, so they let me have whatever data they had obtained about their family background. These data made it possible for me to contact tha mayor of the little village their ancestors started out from. The mayor helped to set up meetings with villagers who still remembered their family, saw the house they had lived in,were received in he city hall, and finally could have lunch with their long lost aunt , Holocaust survivor: Kató Singer, a most delightful lady.
I am gratified to have been able to be part of this happy reunion. See the pictures…
