“Everyone pretends to be normal and be your best friend, but underneath, everyone is living some other life you don’t know about, and if only we had a camera on us at all times, we could go and watch each other’s tapes and find out what each of us was really like.” —Palo Alto (2013)


To help handle the Hungarian refugee crisis, US President Dwight D. Eisenhower established the Committee for Hungarian Refugee Relief on December 12, 1956. Until the end of its operation in May 1957, the Committee assisted in the resettlement of over 30,000 Hungarian refugees across the United States. Those arriving in the reception centers such as Camp Kilmer in New Jersey, found there enthusiastic volunteers and all the necessary conditions to start a new life.
