5 Years ago int September 2015, thousands of migrants who had been stuck in limbo in a station in Budapest set off on foot for the German border. For them, it was the start of a new route to the heart of Europe. For the European Union, it was a challenge to its core principles. By the end of 2015, more than a million people had sought refuge in the EU, with many making the long trek from Turkey, across Greece and the Balkan countries, all the way to the German border.DW News YouTube Channel
