PART II - THE VOLCANO ERUPTS
CHAPTER 16 - FAREWELL TO DARKNESS

Nearing the Gyor station we were warned to lie flat on our stomachs and not to make a move. The engineer told us that according to rumors, an especially strong Russian patrol, combined with an AVO detachment, was going to search the train. The train stopped, and we felt the anxiety of every minute. They seemed like hours. Finally, the train started to move with a jerk. The engineer was happy. He said I could stand up, and he took me to the controls.
" Look out there," he said, pointing out through the window. "We sure pulled a fast one on them."
Approaching the station we saw two Russian tanks and an AVO detachment. The men were armed with submachine guns. There must have been about fifteen or twenty of them. They waved their arms, trying to halt the train. Our friend, the engineer, swore and put on full steam. The train started racing as never before. I saw Russian and AVO officers in uniform in the group.
" You filthy swine," the engineer swore, "you murderers. You killed my son. But your day of reckoning will come."
I was relieved. I knew that there was only one more thing to worry about, and that was crossing the border.
Around three o'clock in the afternoon the train slowed down on the open track and stopped. As if from nowhere my tall friend appeared, helping us with the knapsack and explaining, "We can't go on. The next station is full of AVO men and Ruskis. You'll have to start from here."
I shook his hand and tried to express our gratitude.
" Forget it," he said. "I hope God will help you to reach our friends abroad and shake up their consciences. I hope you will return to us soon."
With this we parted. The rest of the passengers, about two or three hundred people, also alighted from the train. Now we had to head for the fields. What followed was "operation mud". Going through the wet fields, our city shoes stuck deep in the
