Background: Cardinal Wyszynsky, Archbishop of Warsaw and Primate of Poland, stopped off at Vienna on his way by rail to the conclave of Cardinals in Rome. Dr. Konig, Primate of Austria, met him and they drove from the station to Dr. Konig's residence, October 18.
This is the first time since before the Second World War that Cardinal Wyszynsky has left Poland. Until 1956 he was a prisoner of the Polish Communists. The rise of Gomulka led to his release. He is the only representative of the East European states to the Conclave. The other two, Cardinal's Mindszenty and Stepinac of Hungary and Jugoslavia respectively will not attend. Mindszenty is a "prisoner" in the American Embassy at Budapest where he has been since the 1956 uprising.
The Polish Cardinal arrived in Rome, by special train, on Sunday, October 19.
