Jacobo Timerman's "Prisoner without a name , Cell without a number" is truly remarkable book. In this work, Timerman writes about his story and takes us into his world of imprisonment and torture in Argentine jails. The power of falsehoods and myths believed by his torturers drove them to inflict torture and to believe that they doing is right and justified. This book has to be read to be believed and any commentary simply cannot do it justice. It is remarkable message for us and our times. For example, in one instance he wrote that the tortured and the torturers are a small fraction of the population, and the bulk of the population is not involved! Unfortunately, it is true.
Meant to read this book years ago, and finally did. It is a book that is a must read. Glad I did.
If you read one serious book a year this would be a fine choice. (The paperback is 120 pages and the language is easy to read.)
