Train to Vienna
The small railway station in Austria border town Pleissing was quiet and peaceful on March 13, 1949. The railwayman, who was on duty, was enjoying the silence and suddenly he saw four young people. They were carefully checking out the building and one of them who spoke German, entered and took soundings. The experienced railwayman knew what was going on. After all, it was not the first group of refugees from Czechoslovakia. He took care of them, let them oversleep, and gave them tickets to Vienna for train that was leaving at five o'clock in the morning. The refugees were young people from Czechoslovakia who came into conflict with the communist regime for their beliefs. Thanks to the railwayman, all of them got safely to the capital city of Austria.
