Why to come to the Museum of Ethnography?
The Museum of Ethnography in Budapest is one of Europe's largest, most important museums, whose diverse collections house more than 200,000 ethnographic artefacts, as well as historical photographs, manuscripts, folk music recordings, films, and videos..
It has been the task of this volume to seek out and identify such material: to scour the museum’s holdings for Jewish objects from both Hungary, and abroad.
