What you'll do

Budapest, the capital of Hungary, has one of the most fascinating Jewish cultures and history in Europe. It is a community that still flourishes in spite of the many difficulties it has had throughout its long history. I would like to invite you to an interactive conversation, where I will share with you stories about this community, from the time of the Austrian empire, through the Holocaust and the communist era until our present time. I will do this through a bit of historical context, several images, and by sharing my own family stories. As part of the generation that was born at the end of the communist era, raised in the hopeful 90s and 2000s, I have had my own personal journey through understanding my family’s background, the stories of my grandparents who have survived the holocaust, those of my parents who grew up in communism, and all the other stories from which I gradually started to build my own identity. The experience will be the virtual adaptation of my offline tour, which you can learn about and see its reviews here: https://www.airbnb.hu/experiences/181441.
If you would like to attend, but the times don't work for you, please feel free to reach out to me, and I will do my best to make your requested times happen!

I am a freelance psychologist and singer. I guide culture walks in the Jewish quarter of Budapest, Hungary. I have been guiding groups for quite a few years now, and in the past two years through Airbnb. The Jewish quarter of Budapest is my passion, I have spent many years now studying about it, as well as discovering my own family background through it. I have also learned a lot from the people who have been on my tours and challenged my mind over and over again. They really inspired me to think about the real essence of this neighborhood and community. As a psychologist, I am always very interested in my guests’ stories, and their take on the events we talk about.

Gifted the experience to my mother for her birthday. Dora has a bubbly personality and she is a great storyteller. In 1,5 hour we learned a lot about the Jewish history in Budapest. We would definitely recommend it.

Dora tells the stories of Jewish Budapest with pictures and adding her own family experiences. You will find yourself absorbed in all the details she provides to bring the stories alive. Dora was open to any questions and sent additional information to further expand on the history of Jewish Budapest.

This was such a unique birthday gift to offer one of my loved ones. We all appreciated Dora's warmth, knowledge, and her ability to share her own family history as it relates to Budapest as well. Even though my family members are in different parts of the world we left feeling like we had spent 1 1/2 hours on a walking tour together in Budapest.
