Young visitors from Innsbruck

A group of 20 young people (age 16-18) from the Jesuit-run Innsbruck Youth Center (MK) in Austria  visited Budapest early in February. They had decided to devote their Spring Holiday to better understand how their neighbors from Hungary and the Czech Republic think of the refugee crisis.

During their time in Budapest, they visited the House of Terror commemorating the victims of the national-socialist and then communist regimes. They also had a roundtable discussion with members of the Saint Ignatius College in Budapest about the biases people frequently have regarding Hungary and the refugee crisis.
