Exit through Hungary
With Hungary’s borders now open, more and more people are using them to flee the GDR. The refugees all arrive at Tegel airport.
For the first time since 1961, the refugee centre in Marienfelde is full to overflowing.
New arrivals are housed in a disused furniture warehouse in the district of Wedding. From their windows they can see the TV tower in East Berlin.
