Former Student Gerő Passes

April 9, 2021

We are saddened to report the sudden passing last week of Szandra Gerő, a former student of CEU’s Source Language Teaching Group. She was 44 years old.  

Szandra worked at the Hungarian Jewish Museum and Archives in Budapest. A polyglot who read English, Hebrew, Yiddish and German, she studied at Hebrew University and the Budapest University of Jewish Studies (OR-ZSE) as well as CEU. 

She was remembered by her colleagues as honest, kind and deeply knowledgeable about Jewish history. Read more (in Hungarian). 

Our deepest condolence Szandra’s family and friends, colleagues and classmates. She will be missed.
