Cells in Hell: The 15 Worst Prisons On Earth by William Webb
The prison system is broken. Most are overcrowded and often work to the convicts favor. But the 15 prisons here will have you thankful that overcrowding is the only issue.
North Korea's Camp 22 works it's prisoners (including women and children) to death...literally; some estimates say up to 2000 die every year. At Venezuela's Maraciabo prison, 130 inmates were either burned or hacked to death with machetes in 1994. Tadmor Prison in Sryia killed over 1000 of it's inmates in 1980.
These are just three of the prisons you’ll find in the pages that follow. If this book doesn't scare you straight, nothing will.
