In late summer 2015, the Hungarian refugee crisis was the breaking news on almost all important international television channels. The images depicted were previously mostly shown in connection with events on the Mediterranean Sea.
Now a new region, Central and Eastern Europe, is confronted with the arrival of tens of thousands of (mainly) Syrian people. Usually, Germany is the final destination of these refugees, but as Hungary is the first safe Schengen-country on their migration route, most of them are stuck in Budapest and its surroundings, where they have to go through the registration process – and become targets of the Hungarian government’s anti-immigration campaign.
