The young Kossuth used to go to the Piarist school from this house, and his four sisters were born here as well. His youngest sister, Zsuzsanna Kossuth was a devoted supporter of the reforms and took an active part in the 1848-49 Hungarian Revolution.
She participated in organizing the ‘Védegylet’ (a union to protect Hungarian industry), and in 1849, her brother appointed her as the head nurse of field-hospitals. She traveled all over the country to supervise military hospitals, and appealed for women volunteers to help care for the wounded.
Following the capitulation at Világos, Zsuzsanna Kossuth was also imprisoned, but later she was pardoned from the charges. Nonetheless she then lived in difficult financial circumstances with her three children, under constant harassment by the authorities. Therefore she moved to Brussels, where she set up a lace workshop, and in 1853, she emigrated to the United States. However, one year later her lung disease worsened, and she died in New York at the age of 36. She is still considered as a role model for Hungarian nurses.
