Languages of publication
This article examines the new, alternative assimilation strategies among the Hungarian Jewish ethnicity after the decade following World War II. As a hypothesis, the author assumes that the Jewish form their integration (formerly assimilation) strategy according to the substantial elements of the internal, latent structures of their identity (Taylor 1996). The study describes the realization of this new identity frame emerging after the regime change among the Jewish Youth living in Debrecen, and concludes that the existence of the frame of this ethnical identity is obviously recognizable and should the current tendencies not change, such new identity concept would gain even more extent in the areas of their beliefs and concepts. The Jewish Youth living in Debrecen is forthright and proud of their ethnical identity, which is in contrast with the reactive identity concept of their ancestors.
