Jan Grzebski

Railway worker Jan Grzebski, 65, fell into a coma after he was hit by a train in 1988. Back then Poland was still a communist state & food was still being rationed out.

“When I went into a coma there was only tea and vinegar in the shops, meat was rationed and huge petrol queues were everywhere, Now I see people on the streets with mobile phones and there are so many goods in the shops it makes my head spin,” he told Polish television.
