In answer to the previous question- 'What did it mean- the people?'- the Hungarian film director, Bela Tarr, describes the collection of short films, Visions of Europe:
This film tells us that each human being has a life, that each human being has a face, a critical look and a name that are inalienable - that each human being has a dignity. We must try to protect this dignity. Should anyone be deprived of it, we must try to conquer it back for them. This film is about human dignity, it shows humiliated, offended people, it is a film from Hungary.
And do yourself a favour and watch the following few minutes of "Prologue" by Tarr.
