GenSep in Hungary: Lost childhood

Outside Budapest between the districts Budaörs and Albertsfalva the social project Menedékhaz is located. Menedékhaz means shelter house. 20 houseless families with more than 46 children are currently living in the old casern. They move into the temporary home because they can’t pay their rents or even because fathers throw their wifes and children out.

The German journalist Katalin Grabow (30) gets ivolved with these children teaching them dance lessons. Although she loves „her kids“ she is aware that they will never become a part of the Hungarian society, that they are stigmatized because they are gipsies or because they have lived in this house.

Ten kilometers far from Budapest a part of tomorrow’s generation is already separated.
