PART I - IN THE SHADOW OF DEATH
CHAPTER 13 - THE WIVES

The following week, the prison representative of the AVO who was in charge of political affairs called me to his office. He offered me a chair, and gave me a lengthy lecture on the danger of my request to reopen the case.
" You are a politi~ian-remember that your case is a complicated political affair. You had better wait for your turn," he advised.
" Well, sir," I replied, "if you forbid me to, I will not present my petition." This made him angry.
" I'm not forbidding you to," he said, reddening, "I'm only warning you because I want to help you."
" I will keep your petition with me for a fortnight," he continued. "Should you change your mind in the meantime, let me know." With this he dismissed me.
I did not change my mind, but I never heard any more about my petition. For all I know it still could be in his desk.
God's mills grind slowly but their wheels still turn; so one day the sergeant in charge of the guards came into my cell with a slip of paper in his hand, and informed me that henceforth I would be permitted to receive visitors. He asked me whom I wished to see, and I gave my wife's address. The week that followed was long, and full of excitement and anticipation. I spent most of my free time cleaning my clothes and trying to look presentable to her. My friends unanimously decided that I should not be allowed to wear my sweater creation. Instead, they gave me a clean shirt, and even a beautiful handkerchief.
The day of my wife's visit arrived, and I was taken to the visitor's room. Iron bars divided the room into two parts. I watched the other side of the room anxiously. Suddenly the door opened, and the wives started to come in accompanied by two guards. They filed into the room in a long procession, and finally I glimpsed my wife, her small and slender figure almost hidden by two huge guards.
We looked at each other-for precious minutes we could

not find words, when they finally came, they were more like caresses trying to bridge the gap imposed by the iron bars. We talked about our daughter, ourselves, and our friends, and about the outside world.
Looking back, the conversation was not very dramatic, yet this meeting will always be one of the most momentous events I ever shared with her.
