A gift from Ambrose Balajthy Júlia

Our Foundation owes a lot to an outstanding representative of the Hungarian American community, Dr. Eugene Megyesy, who lives in Denver. This time, he brought us to Budapest some interesting documents of Otto von Habsburg’s visits to Denver and his network of contacts there. The photos are from Ambrose Balajthy Júlia, whose mother was the sister of Etienne Perényi, a prominent figure in the Hungarian colony in Denver and a friend of Otto von Habsburg.
