Visegrád video competition - here are the results!

With the support of the Visegrád Fund, Centropa organized a video competition for the Visegrád countries for the first time. Students of Hungary, Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic were invited to create short films about their town’s Jewish history and culture. Almost 40 videos were submitted to the competition, which were evaluated by an international jury. The results were announced on our annual Town Hall meeting in Budapest on the 26th of May.
