Woman exile: "Yes."
Reporters: "And any other groups?"
Woman exile: "Well in one group that was going in the coaches, well there came about forty here."
Reporter: "Forty people who are staying here?"
Woman exile: "Well to Spain?"
Woman exile: "No, but I think they stayed in Germany, in France, in Switzerland."
Reporters: "Out of one hundred, how many in that group?"
Woman exile: "I think about one hundred, about two coaches in one group."
Reporter: "So about forty out of one hundred arrived in Spain?"
Woman exile: "Yes."
Reporter: "And the others you think stayed in Germany or France?"
Woman exile: "France, yes."
Reporter: "Now that's one group, your's is another, but there are four more groups, do you know anything about them?"
Man exile: "No, not a thing."
Woman exile: "No, because they are the groups after us came about the 27th June, but we didn't meet anybody from this group."
Reporter: "Were there any, shall I say, officials in the group, people who tried to look after you?"
Woman exile: "Yes, of course."
Reporter: "How many?"
Woman exile: "Well we thought about 5 or 6."
Reporter: "But you didn't know who?"
Women exile: "Well two yes, because they were well..."
Reporter: "It was obvious, OK, and how did you live a day in...for example, could you walk around freely or were you always in the group?"
Woman exile: "Well, no, we were given freedom"
Reporter: "How do you think they selected the people to come in these groups? Did they check to come in these groups? Did they check your records as to whether you were a member of Solidarity?"
Woman exile: "Well, you see, they had had before December about 10 million members of the Solidarity, so they couldn't....and when I got the passport they said, they told me that, well, we think you are going to come back because your children are here."
