PART I - IN THE SHADOW OF DEATH
CHAPTER 7 - DOBERDO

after all. It was impossible to believe that we might spend the rest of our lives in this horrible little cell, eating that garbage for food.
There was a single pipe running through the cell. This was obviously meant to give the illusion of heating in wintertime. One day we heard knocking on the pipe. Complete silence was an iron rule in the building. Even inside the cells we could only talk in whispers, so we could hear the knocks well. The prisoners were exchanging messages in the prisoners' code. This one was simple. The letter "A" was one knock, the letter "B" two, and so forth. It took many knocks to write down the letters toward the end of the alphabet. Sending and receiving such dispatches took hours. We decided to start listening. For two days we did nothing but listen. On the second day we heard a message from Rubletzky. He was sending it to us. One of us watched at the door, two listened for the message. The others tried to put the incoherent fragments into comprehensible words and sentences. "IN NUMBER 601 . . . WAR. . . FOUR . . . BRING . . . BACK. . . ." This was all we could get in two days. On the third day the door opened, and the dreaded secret police entered the cell. We were lost.... They took us to the commander of the prison.
" I knew for sure you would try to organize a conspiracy even here. Well, now you'll learn about Doberdo."2
On the following day we were marching with the guards, carrying our towels and eating utensils. When we passed the prisoners' cleaning squad, they looked at us sadly. I couldn't quite understand what this was all about. I remembered from my army days that even a colonel could sentence one, at the most, to two weeks solitary. Well, it can't be more here either. And that's something one can survive.
1 Number 60 Andrassy Ut was the dreaded address of the Communist secret police in Budapest.
2 During World War I, Doberdo was the scene of the bloodiest battles between the Italian and Austro-Hungarian armies.
