Just over a month ago, when I arrived, Zsuzsa told me that the police had just cleared the railway station of refugees from Syria trying to make their way to Germany and the rest of the EU. A month later, the world is watching while this tragic and complicated story unfolds. While this is not in chronological order of my narrative, I feel it is necessary to post these immediately.

If anything, I hope these inspire you to take a moment and understand that these are real people who, fearing for their lives and the safety of their children, have fled their home countries. They are not the problem. The Hungarian government and police force aren't oppressive either - they have responsibilities to uphold for the entire European Union. This is just a complicated and confusing problem that needs public pressure to ignite a solution from global diplomats. We are all humans.
I plan to return for more photographs in the immediate future.
