It was October, a cold night. They did not tell anyone that they were going to flee to the West because anyone would believe them too. And then, the rich and the poor, prosecutors and pilots, artists and sailors escaped from their rugged Poland. But children? 16-year-old Adam and 13-year-old Krzyś started by train to Szczecin and then to Świnoujście. It was the first time they saw the sea. They went to the side where they were landing ferries. At that time, the parents of Zieliński brothers had already read their farewell letter. The boy's mother went to report their disappearance, but she heard that if they were hungry, they would come back. Under the cover of the night the boys sneaked into the parking lot and chose a lorry with a Polish registration, the semitrailer of which was the lowest suspended. They decided that this would be the most convenient way. The discomfort is nothing, but at the end of October night frosts. They were not prepared for such a cold. They also had no certainty that this particular tir was waiting for the ferry. The guards were watching, they were flashing, watching the truck's undercarriage, but they did not notice. They were quite lucky - that day the dog fell ill, which always accompanied the border guards. When they drove underneath the ferry, they felt relief mainly because of the heat. Finally, they could sleep. They slept when the truck started. Again the same anxiety - where he is carrying them and how long he will go, because they were on three axes. One tube was on thighs, the other on the stomach, the third on the chest and for over 25 hours. Tir stopped at a nearby parking lot. They came out carefully from under him. They did not know where they were. When they saw a lot of foreign cars in the town, large and colorful shop displays, they were sure that they were in the West, though they still did not know where. They were hungry, dirty, tired, but delighted with another world. They did not run away when they saw the police. They thought it was the best time to ask for asylum. At the police station, they found out that they were in Sweden, in Ystad. At the end of 1985, the decision was made to grant Zieliński asylum.
