Warsaw Central Station.

From Gazeta Wyborcza (main newspaper).
It is 12:15 am. A train from Przemyśl arrives at the Warszawa Centralna station with an hour delay. After a while, the platform is crowded.

Volunteers claim that with each subsequent day of the war people come to Poland, poorer and worse, from more and more distant corners of Ukraine. - While at the beginning people were coming pulling suitcases on wheels, now we see more and more people with nets and bags. These are people who have no friends and family in Poland, are not prepared to move

I see entire families of refugees getting off the train from Przemyśl. Grandma, mother, five children.

What happens to them next?

Just a few moments after the train stops, the volunteers approach the refugees and direct them to the main hall. Otherwise, those fleeing the war would have no idea where to go.

Volunteers guide refugees from the platform to the registration point under the mezzanine of the Central Station, where the recognition of the initial need takes place. Most of the refugees are looking for accommodation in Warsaw.

A significant number of refugees decide to leave for the West, which is why for several days from the Central Station every 2-3 hours. free buses to Germany, organized by the voivode, leave. Some people also go to bus stations, from where they also depart for other countries - Latvia and Estonia.
