In Hungary, the Sashegyi Arany János Primary School and High School participated in the project whose lead teachers, Éva Marton and Szilvia Csanády, are members of Centropa's professional advisory team. Their students regularly visited the Farkasréti Jewish cemetery  and they have been to the Csörsz Street Jewish cemetery as well to prepare the project. They took photos for an exhibition and created a film. They interviewed József Konrád, the son of György Konrád, who is buried in Farkasréti cemetery, and György Kroó's colleague and friend László Győri. As a result, they made their own film and organised an exhibition, which was presented to their fellow students.
