Thousands of refugees slept at the Budapest Keleti Train station until they decided to walk to Austria. Germany welcomes those seeking asylum. The Hungarian government's trains take the refugees to a refugee camp and treat them badly.
A refugee describes how the Syrian War caused education and job loss, resulting in Syrians believing they had no identity. Hungarians hand out water and food to the walking population. A man gives his shoes to his wife because hers have caused blisters to erupt.
Syrians traveling to Austria stop walking after 11 hours. Mahmoud lost his leg due to a bomb explosion. Hungarians pass out clothing and food to the families.
Under international pressure, Hungary has agreed to transport the refugees to the border of Austria via bus; many are afraid they will be taken to a camp. The group agrees to allow one bus to travel, and then call back when it reaches the border. The refugees travel by train to Munich.
