Obituary-Mr. László Hámos

        

It is with sadness that I pass along the news of László Hamos’ passing after a prolonged illness. He did much for our Foundation and served as our first Board Chair. He also devoted his life to helping the Hungarian diaspora community around the world but especially the Hungarian communities in the Carpathian basin. Please keep his family in your thoughts and prayers. Below is the notification sent out by the embassy staff in DC.

 "Elhunyt Hámos László, az amerikai magyar közösség meghatározó alakja

Szomorú szívvel értesültünk, hogy hosszan tartó és türelemmel viselt betegségét követően, életének 68. évében elhunyt a Magyar Diaszpóra Tanács (MDT) amerikai regionális elnöke, Hámos László. A Párizsban erdélyi és felvidéki magyar szülők gyermekeként született Hámos László szerepe a határon túli magyar közösségek érdekeinek védelme területén már az 1970-es évektől jól ismert volt, amely mellett aktív és meghatározó szereplője volt az amerikai magyarság közösségi életének is. Hámos László 1991-ben részt vett az Amerikai Magyar Koalíció (HAC) ernyőszervezet megalapításában, és azóta is tagja volt a szervezet végrehajtó bizottságának. Állandó meghívottja volt a Magyar Állandó Értekezlet (MÁÉRT) és a Kárpát-medencei Magyar Képviselők Fóruma (KMKF) budapesti üléseinek a nyugati magyarság képviseletében, és részt vett a Magyar Diaszpóra Tanács 2011-es megalakításában is. Ekkor az amerikai delegáció egyhangúan őt jelölte az MDT amerikai regionális elnöki pozíciójára, amely posztot haláláig ő látott el. Hámos László rendszeresen vett részt szervező partnerként és előadóként is nagykövetségünk Regionális Diaszpóra Értekezletein. Munkáját számos alkalommal részesítették elismerésben: Márton Áron emlékplakett (1988), a Külföldi Magyar Cserkészszövetség oklevele (1995), Kisebbségekért-díj (1996), Bocskai-díj (1999, Csíkszereda), a Magyar Köztársaság Középkeresztje (2001), az Amerikai Magyar Alapítvány Abraham Lincoln díja (2007), a Magyar Tudományos Akadémia Arany János Érme (2011). Temetésére – a család kérésére – szűk körben kerül sor. Emlékét hálás szívvel megőrizzük, nyugodjék békében!"

 

 

Kossuth Foundation Awarded Grant from the Bethlen Gabor Foundation

On April 18, 2019, the Kossuth Foundation was awarded a generous 1,250,000 HUF (approximately $4,000) grant from the Bethlen Gabor Foundation (Bethlen Gábor Alapitvány or BGA) to support the Kossuth Foundation’s adult Hungarian language education program. The BGA is supported by the National Policy Research Institute (Nemzetpolitikai Kutatóintézet) of the Government of Hungary. Upon hearing of the grant award, Gabor Rozsa, Executive Director of the Foundation, said “We are enormously appreciative of the generous support we have received from the Bethlen Gabor Foundation and the Hungarian Government.” The Kossuth Foundation’s language program offers evening adult language education in the Washington, DC metro area at the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. The program employs professional teachers who are all native Hungarian speakers with practical experience in language education. In the past, the program has been supported by donations from students, and has struggled to break even. This new grant will allow the program greater flexibility to grow and provide more services to the community. Grant funds will be used to help defray the salaries of teachers and also to purchase supplies to enhance the ability of the classes to meet student needs.

Kossuth Foundation 2019 Spring Semester Language Program

The Kossuth Foundation's Hungarian Language Program offers language classes to adults in the Washington, DC, metro area. For the spring 2019 semester, courses are taught at the beginner, intermediate and advanced levels in the evenings at the Kossuth House near Dupont Circle and in McLean. Courses meet once per week for 12 weeks.

Courses start on the week of January 14, 2019.
