Hundreds of East Germans poured into refugee camps in Hungary on Saturday, joining thousands of others waiting for an unprecedented exodus of East Bloc citizens to the West. More than 3,000 East Germans already were inside the camps in and near Budapest, awaiting passage to West Germany under an arrangement between Bonn and Communist Hungary. Authorities will not say when the transfer is to take place, although it is believed it will begin within days.

About 30 East Germans have taken refuge in West Germany's embassy in Budapest, Hungary, hoping to win admission to the West, the West German newspaper Bild am Sonntag said. It quoted a Bonn official as saying many East Germans had been drawn to Hungary after it began dismantling its border fence with Austria in May, leading them to believe they could make their way to West Germany via Hungary. But Hungarian border patrols were turning back East Germans, the paper said.
