The other block

Back to the team for the weekend after a couple of days solitary confinement.

I’ll move back and forth for three months while unable to work.

Comrades on strike share the same treatment.

 

Only: they stay in solitary confinement even on the weekends until they break the strike.

It’s funny how I had contemplated rejecting work and now I’m forced out of it.

I won’t complain as I can keep myself busy over there.

 

The other block is a tad newer and quieter.

However, the criminals serving that block seem to move more freely.

Over here we hardly see them at all unless clothes are exchanged or back in the kitchen.

 

Some of them even spend time chatting.

I’ll try to buy stuff from them if I find anyone trustworthy.

I rely on official food while there, which is part of the plan I guess.

 

Glad to spend the weekend with Konrad and the boys.

Enjoying black tea and the private food.

Thursday was no transport.

 

It happens occationally.

By being moved around I understand the lay of the land.

It’s hard to imagine over 700 inmates in here, it’s just three blocks.

Former GDR prison in Naumburg. It held over 700 prisoners in three blocks in the 80's. Most of them by the 'invitation' of the Stasi for political reasons.
