“It was the cruelest form of punishment”

“The guy who comes to hit me with a donkey piel or unleashes a dog on me, I can deal with. But when a guy comes to you and exercises his power over you by giving you a letter with a big window cut into it, it was the cruelest form of punishment. We tried very hard to fight it.” -A prisoner from Robben Island Prison, where Nelson Mandela was held.
