PART I - IN THE SHADOW OF DEATH
CHAPTER 11 - IN THE ENGINEERING SECTION

arrived. The trees in the courtyard began to show their first leaves. It was all very cheerful, except for the sight of the large locked building on the other side of the courtyard. We called it the "house of ghosts," for the corpse of every executed prisoner was taken on a small cart to the basement of that building before it was carried to its unmarked grave in the burial grounds. Whenever we heard the rattling of the cart, we knew that one of our prison mates had left this world. The sound of the cart heard all too frequently meant to us what the obituary column means to those who live in the free world.
One day a sudden change occurred. One of the engineers was walking along the corridor to another cell, to give some instructions to one of his associates. When he passed a guard, who had usually been rather kind, he received a surprisingly strong kick.
" You filthy Fascist dog," snarled the guard, "back to your cell, the good days are over, it's time for you to learn what prison means."
A few days later new guards arrived, all of them rough, and the same evening we heard the woeful cries of beaten prisoners from the other side of the prison. The beatings and tortures had started again. We were sure that something big must have happened outside.
For four days we were not even taken for our routine walks. Then we were told to walk about ten feet apart, hold our hands behind our backs, keep our eyes down, and not say a word. The gruff threats which accompanied these instructions left no illusions as to what would happen if we broke these rules.
On returning from our walk, one of the translators, Pal Ignotus, whispered into my ear at the door: "Stalin is dead."
I can hardly describe the happiness I felt when I heard this news. I was anxious to get back to the cell and tell it to all my friends. So Stalin was dead, the bloody hangman! What would follow, no one could tell.
