Employees of the Dutch Red Cross get the Jaarbeurs halls in Utrecht ready for the relief of 670 Hungarian refugees, who fled Hungary after the invasion of the USSR. Around 11PM the train with the refugees arrives at Utrecht Central Station, after which they go to the Jaarbeurs halls by bus. In the Margriet hall they receive something to drink and minister J.G. Suurhoff of Social Affairs talks to some of them. After that they are registered.
