Three documentary-inspired works that illuminate life on the run and as a displaced person in a camp in very different ways: first, an unedited document by the US Army Signal Corps from April 1945, then a retrospective by the great avant-garde filmmaker Jonas Mekas on his years as a displaced person in Germany and finally, a short film commissioned by the United Nations about the Hungarian crisis in 1956 and the refugee camp Traiskirchen.
