The Holocaust Memorial Center in Budapest cordially invites you to the opening ceremony of the temporary exhibition
Desired Worlds, Jewish Middle-Class Worlds in Győr between 1867 and 1944
Industrial modernization played an important role in the development of Győr’s urban self-image in the last third of the 19th century. It influenced greatly the self-identity of the Győr middle class Jewry as well. Their belonging to the civil society was expressed through various symbolic cultural phenomena. This exhibition recalls a bourgeois Jewish lifestyle in Győr which was ended abruptly by the Shoah, a change that caused irreversible transformation in the city.
