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

mud at every step. They were certainly not made for this sort of excursion.
The crowd broke up into small groups. I would have liked to join one group which moved fast, their leader obviously knew the area. However, my friend's wife had come with us from Budapest, and I had to help her get through the tortuous path. We must have gone about a mile or so when we heard shots fired in front of us. In a few minutes we reached a railroad crossing. A railroad man was standing there with a bicycle.
" Turn around all of you, you are running into a trap," he shouted. "Don't you see that the forward group has been captured by the Russians? Lie down flat," he said, "the Ruskis will be here in a minute." I disregarded his warning, gripped Lonci and Catherine's hands and pulled them over the rails. Then I helped my friend's wife and daughter. We ran way ahead on the other side of the track at a distance from the rest of the group, hoping that we would not be conspicuous. We still heard the railroad man shouting, warning the others. Then he came over to us.
" Come along with me," he said, "you can hide at my house."
A few hundred yards ahead of us was a small house. It must have belonged to the railroad watchman. Several haystacks stood near the house. When we got there the place was crowded with refugees. The watchman and his wife gave us all hot tea and tried to make us comfortable. More and more people arrived. The watchman hid the newcomers in the haystacks. I struck up a conversation with him. I offered him money if he could get us someone to guide us across the border. "Stay here for the night," he said. "We'll see what happens tomorrow."
We took off our shoes and started eating some of the food from our knapsacks. Lonci had a terrible headache. I made her lie down on the bed. Catherine was excited and thoroughly enjoyed the situation.
" Look, Daddy," she exclaimed, "the stars are falling."
