COVID Policy Declaration by the Owners and Leadership of the Hungarian House

The leadership of the Hungarian House of New York wish to reiterate its continued commitment to ensure the safety and health of all guests and staff of the Hungarian House, while we continue to serve our community.

The main principle underlying our health and safety policy is to fully comply with the rules and guidelines determined by New York City and the State of New York.

It is the responsibility of each organization or individual who rents or organizes meetings in the Hungarian House to be aware of the current rules and guidelines, and to ensure compliance with them.

The Manager and the owners of the Hungarian House of New York reserve the right to check compliance with these rules and guidelines. In cases of non-adherence rental agreements may be cancelled and/or events cancelled. We also recognize that some event organizers might wish to apply stricter rules than the guideline in force now. We are supportive of their decision to do so.

Hungarian House goes ONLINE

The six Hungarian nonprofit organizations operating in the Hungarian House of New York offer about 350 Hungarian community programs annually. Although we are keeping the building closed due to the current health situation, all six organizations are working hard to bring the community together, so we are keeping almost all of our permanent community programs going online.
For more information about each program, please contact the organization!

We Are Launching a Book Club!

Online Book Club Knocking on Your Door

Living in New York, it is relatively hard to keep track of which Hungarian books to read and where to get them. It is especially hard to find people to engage in discussion about them, even though a number of literary sensations recently reached the States. In 2019, Laszló Krasznahorkai won the National Book Award with Baro Wenckheim’s Homecoming. In 2015, The New York Times called Magda Szabó’s The Door one of the 10 Best Books of the Year thirty years after it was first published. So, the American Hungarian Library is launching its virtual book club to encourage you to read Hungarian literature and catch up on current literary events — a great way to spend our days in quarantine.

First book: Magda Szabó: The Door
Date: Thursday, April 30 at 7 PM,  online (obviously)
The first book club will be led by: Lili Török

Registration: https://www.hungarianlibrary.org/event-info/book-club-konyvklub

Drama, comedy 1h 42min , 2018

The film presents in Hungarian with English subtitles.

The story takes place on New Year’s Eve that a group of friends have been celebrating together for years. The topic of the conversation veers in the direction of how nowadays people store many secrets and confidential information on their cell phones, and what kinds of conflicts may arise if the phones fall into unauthorized hands. Each of the seven members of the group insists on not having any secrets, on their lives being an open book, to which Aliz suggests that they should prove it. Everybody puts their cell phones on the table, and anyone who receives a call, a text message, an e-mail or a picture or audio message, has to share it with the others. The game starts out playfully but quickly turns serious when, after the small secrets and things that have been kept hidden, more and more serious lies and betrayals come to light. By the end of the night, the seven people, who have been good friends since they were kids, are faced with each other’s true self and feelings, and with the question whether honesty is of utmost importance or the most harmful factor in a relationship.
