Thousands of refugees abandon Budapest station and start WALKING to Austria

Carrying their worldly belongings and even their young children in their arms (right), the migrants continue to march along the highway from Keleti railway station in Budapest towards Austria this evening (centre) after Hungarian authorities blocked them from boarding western-bound trains. The desperate refugees snaked through the capital in a line stretching nearly half a mile as they began the 100-mile journey to the Austrian border (left and inset). In chaotic scenes, thousands chanting 'Germany, Germany' streamed down the main highway from Budapest to Vienna while others sprinted onto railway tracks in Bicske, a town in northern Hungary, escaping a packed train held back by police for two days. In the commotion, a 51-year-old Pakistani man collapsed about 800 metres from the station and died despite efforts by medics to save him. It is believed he stumbled onto the tracks and hit his head in a desperate bid to flee police, who were clad in riot gear. Tonight, German and Austrian authorities announced they would allow migrants to enter their countries, while Hungary said it would lay on dozens of buses to ferry desperate refugees to their borders.

How Nazi PR reps and interior designers tackled Hitler's 'IMAGE problem': Fawning 'lifestyle' articles claimed the world's most evil dictator was a caring man with 'great taste in décor'... then he invaded Poland

Hitler at Home details how Nazi leader used interior design to fool the world

Architectural historian Despina Stratigakos explores how the Fuhrer carefully curated his private light to project an image as a 'charming neighbor' in her new book, Hitler at Home. When Hitler first ascended to power as the leader of the Nazi party in the early 1920s, he had an image issue that his public relations team were tasked with remedying. The political leader was a bachelor, with little family or girlfriend - making him a difficult figure for most Germans to relate to. 'They were able to engineer a complete transformation of Hitler's public persona,' says Stratigakos, interim chair of architecture at the University of Buffalo. 'They accomplished this by focusing on his private life - by showing him playing with his dogs and with children, and at home in architectural spaces designed to evoke a feeling of warmth. By the end of the 1930s, news stories around the world described him as a caring, gentle individual with great taste in home décor,' she said.
