This study examines the autobiographical creation of denominational rel ations in the framework of definitional differentiation between integration and assimilation, co m paring the memoirs of a Jewish agricultural intellectual of nation - wide fame and a Christian la w- yer, both from Gyöngyös and both relating the story of their yo uth. In both auto - biographies the modern Hungarian society shows an integrating but not assimilated pi c- ture. The study analyses how lifestyles, systems of values, the problems of connubium and comensality, namely class - based behavioural sociological separa tion and maintaining rel a- tions between denominations are presented in the two autobiographies; it tries to prove that in a small town in the first half of the 20th century there were no barriers between 30 Jews and Christians, or if there were they were not w here they are traditionally supposed to have been. The second part of my work concentrates on the fact that the autobiogr a p h- ers still considered it important whether they were Jews or not; what is more, the society they cr e ated in their autobiographies als o found it important. Finally, the study hints at the fact that the simultaneous presence of integration and the lack of assimilation were the prerequisites for the development of large scale social inequalities between Jews and Chri s tians.
