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

tell you," the little peasant politician continued. "How could I keep silent about such a disgrace? Do you realize what will happen to this country if even anti-Communist politicians prostitute themselves? I would rather face death honestly than resort to treachery."
" It is not as easy as that, Joe," my associate answered. "One day you may discover that perhaps I took a greater risk than any of you. I don't feel I deserve those words, Joe. Another thing. You may not realize it, but this very conversation may endanger my life, while the only risk facing you is ten days in solitary."
For several days after this conversation, my associate kept silent, and I did not bring up the subject again. What was I to tell him? Luckily, the whole invention project came to an abrupt end within a fortnight.
It was mid-July in 1952. The whole prison was plunged into an unusual silence, and we all realized that this was the quiet before the storm.
I listened nervously to any sound from the corridors, but the quiet steps of the guards was all I could hear. It seemed to me that some of the cell doors were being opened very quietly, as if prisoners were walking barefoot in the corridor. Then suddenly the prison walls resounded with a terrible cry of pain; an animal-like wailing that reflected unbearable torture. The cry reminded me of a childhood experience. I remembered a snowy winter when a group of peasants had hunted down a pack of wolves. The wounded animals had been finished off with clubs, and sounds like those they had emitted now echoed within the prison walls. I could hear swearing, blows, submachine guns, and what sounded like mortally wounded animals being tossed back into their cells. Methodically, one after another I heard the cell doors open. They seemed to be approaching our cell.
