United Hungarian Societies

The UHS serves as an umbrella organization that unites the Greater Cleveland area Hungarian-American organizations and works to represent their interests. In so doing, it seeks to preserve, cultivate, develop and disseminate Hungarian culture.

Welcome to Cleveland’s Hungarian community!

Vast and varied in its scope, it encompasses both first generation immigrants and those who were born here. Over 90,000 people listed Hungarian ancestry in the greater Cleveland area, and about 4,500 of those speak the language in their household. Approximately 400 people attend a local Hungarian church service on any given weekend, and Cleveland’s secular Hungarian organizations have about 2,000 members on their combined mailing lists. Ours is a large and diverse community.

Compromise and cooperation are the glue that binds us together, as well as culture, tradition, and great Hungarian food. Join us at an event of your choosing; you will not regret it!

KOSSUTH STATUE

The oldest Hungarian monument in Cleveland is the statue of Lajos Kossuth, erected in 1902. The United Hungarian Societies was founded in that very year for the express purpose of building a monument to Hungary’s champion of liberty. It can be found in Cleveland’s University Circle, at the corner of Euclid Avenue and Stearns Road.

MINDSZENTY AND 1956 STATUES

Downtown at Mindszenty Plaza (Lakeside Avenue and East 12th Street) is the bust of Cardinal Joseph Mindszenty as well as a monument to the 1956 Revolution, evoking an anonymous Hungarian freedom fighter, with a hole in the Hungarian flag where the hated Soviet star had been torn out, a flag that came to symbolize the freedom fight. Many refugees of the 1956 Revolution arrived in Cleveland shortly afterwards, built new lives in the US, and still live here.
