I just rememberd something I meant to mention in an earlier post about the Synagogue in Dohany Ut.
It was damaged during ww2 and the communist occupation. It was only after 1989 and the fall of the iron curtain that the building could be properly restored. This was achieved largely through a donation of five million dollars by Estee Lauder, the famous cosmetics founder, who is of Hungarian Jewish descent. There’s even a special seat for her family at the front with the Lauder name engraved.
I just thought that was quite interesting!
