PART I - IN THE SHADOW OF DEATH
CHAPTER 10 - THE CRY OF THE BEATEN WOLVES

On a spring day in 1952, some of the inmates were being transferred to another prison under rather mysterious circumstances, and with the use of extreme precaution. Thirty or forty of us, chained together, were herded into a police van. This modern version of slave transportation was highly efficient; it could be carried out easily, with a minimum number of guards.
Several of us knew the area, and, through the small openings in the closed truck, we saw that we were going toward the capital, probably to the large Central Prison, which is used for regrouping prisoners. We had to be careful of our whispers, for being overheard meant the whip-another reminder of Roman times.
Soon we arrived at the enormous Central Prison of Budapest. This "masterpiece" of prison architecture is built like a star, with corridors fanning out from a central glass dome. It looks rather like a modern version of a Greek temple. Every point of this "star" housed a different category of inmates. Those in the right wing were common criminals; those on the left, political prisoners. Under the Communist system the two overlapped, to some extent, for many who had been sentenced for ordinary offenses were actually guilty of sitting on the wrong side of the political fence.
Take, for example, a peasant who was very unpopular with the Communists in his village. The Party Secretary denounced him when he cut down a tree in his own yard. Likewise, city dwellers were charged with dealing in foreign currencies and
