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

I tried to comfort Lonci and Catherine. I did my best to tell them some jokes, rubbing their limbs to warm them. Catherine was impatient, she wanted to start right away.
" Where are we going, Daddy?" she asked. "We are going to Austria, dear," I answered.
" There are no Ruskis there, are there?" she inquired. "And no one wants to put you in prison there. Right?" she persisted. "That's right, my dear. Austria is in the free world." "Why can't Hungary be free too?" she said. "I wish she were."
I didn't quite know how to answer that question.
After midnight we started out on the most difficult part of our journey. We had ten miles ahead of us, through cornfields, half-frozen mud, woods, and irrigation ditches. The icy wind chilled us to the bone. It seemed to be an endless journey in the darkness. Every step meant an effort to disengage our feet from the heavy clay and put them falteringly forward. The whole world disappeared in the darkness. We were a small piece of isolated humanity trying to find its way from the known terror into the unknown wilderness. We were tired beyond feeling. Our legs were numb. The knapsack straps bit into our shoulders. I never knew that a small sack could be that heavy. The darkness was broken occasionally by searchlights. This meant that we were pursued and gave us added impetus to move again. Every time the light came near, we lay down in the mud, and listened to our pounding hearts. It took a superhuman effort to get up again. The journey went on endlessly.
The light gray shadow of a road caused our guides to stop. They motioned us to be quiet and listened to the sounds in the night.
I heard them whispering: "Maybe we will make it in time," one of them said.
" Don't you think it better to wait?" the other one inquired. "The Russian patrol will come the same way. If we stay
