  • "So this is hell. I'd never have believed it. You remember all we were told about the torture-chambers, the fire and brimstone, the "burning marl." Old wives' tales! There's no need for red-hot pokers. Hell is-other people! " ~ Jean-Paul Sartre

  • I thought it would be a wheel with a lot of sharp pieces of metal at the bottom similar to the thumbnail. Can you imagine being raked over a cheese-grater repeatedly until you were just bits of hamburger?

  • I don't know what this is called in English, but there was another method that is pure evil. They cut three strips of skin from the victim, braided them together and ripped the skin from the body.
