In the summer months of 2015 volunteers represented practically the only help to refugees stranded at Budapest’s Keleti railway station. Many were students who didn’t hesitate to use their time and own funds in such a way. Direct participants, university students and teachers from the Hungary and the Czech Republic, shared their experiences and debated the role universities have had and should have in Europe’s ongoing refugee crisis.
