In addition to over 7,000 volumes in their reference library, there are exquisite examples of Hungarian garb, paintings and porcelain. The Hungarian experience in Cleveland is beautifully displayed.

Ms. Csobar has been invited by the State Department to travel extensively throughout the United States in hope of developing an economic strategy for smaller countries and numerous issues affecting U.S. and Hungarian relations and trade. She is also very interested in all issues that pertain to women and human rights.
