Harlow is 75: Reka Kohegyi: From Dunaujvaros to Captain Tom

Harlow is 75: A Celebration of Global Harlow / Sun 17th Jul 2022 at 12:27pm

WE first met Reka Kohhegyi when, during the pandemic, she was making crocheted figures for charity.

She made Sir David Attenborough, Sir Captain Tom Moore, NHS nurses and many more.

Knowing that Reka was from Hungary, we thought she would be an ideal interviewee for our Harlow is 75 project.

It happened to be a co-incidence that we interviewed three Hungarian women in the space of a week.

To mark the town’s 75thanniversary, Harlow Council and Your Harlow have launched a project which records the diverse history, heritage, and culture of the people and groups which are part of modern-day Harlow.

The Harlow at 75 project is made up of audio-visual recordings of conversations with both individuals and groups that explores their lives abroad before resettling in Harlow. The project reflects that we are a local but global new town and explores themes such as the definition of “Home”.

Nice to see her wonderful support for the NHS. It proves that all of us can do something to support our fellow citizens. It also proves that place of birth is irrelevant, what is more important is how you treat others.
