This chapter investigates the similarities and differences between the Jewish experience in Poland and Hungary in the last two centuries. It looks at the extract from a letter from Aleksander Kraushar, one of the leading exponents of Jewish integration in the Kingdom of Poland, to the Polish novelist Józef Ignacy Kraszewski, who had reproached the Jewish supporters of the integration in the aftermath of the failed insurrection of 1863. It also examines Kraushar's letter as an extended discussion of the problems facing acculturated Jews in the face of the emergence of political antisemitism in the Kingdom of Poland. The chapter recounts the successful Jewish integration in Hungary. It mentions the identification with Magyardom that survived even the rejection of Jewish integration by a large proportion of Hungarian society in the interwar period.

Keywords:   Jewish experience, Poland, Hungary, Aleksander Kraushar, Jewish integration, Józef Ignacy Kraszewski, Magyardom
