Visszidensek: a neologism using the words "vissza" + "disszidens" = visszidens, "back dissidents”, or re-migrants, referring to people who migrated back to Hungary, after the 2010 act of the Hungarian Parliament approving dual citizenship.
In December 2017, Friends of Hungary Foundation published the first book telling the story of twelve Visszidensek. Volume II soon followed featuring another twelve.
Written by Péter Gyuricza, a journalist and communications expert, he has revealed the incredible stories of 24 Hungarians, representative of the many Hungarians who enriched the world with their unique talents and have now returned. We have four who will tell their stories in person on December 11.
Frido and the Sastipen Gypsy Band are the featured entertainment to this celebratory program.
Date: December 11, 2018, 5:30 P.M.
