The following articles concern tor ture in Greek amd turkish prisons. One is a letter written from Athens to a friend in london by an intel lectual closely in touch with the situa tion in Greek jails. The other is by a woman in Ankara who smuggled from jail her story of torture there. I hope you received my last letter, mainly concerned with X. In the meantime, instead of any improve ment, at least in the living conditions of prisoners, there is a definite turn for the worse, both for those prisoners.

Y was seen by a member of his family, and he was looking thinner and more exhausted than at any pre vious visit. The only ificant thing he said was to ask them why they did not provide him with any toilet paper, and he looked quite desperate and reed when assured that they had brought paper repeatedly. You can visualize the condition of a man suffering from continuous dysentery and not having any paper.

About the others I have no specific informatin, but I feel sure that their conditions are no better, becauser I hear such general news about them as that they look thinner and tired. About the students nothing definite is known, as practically no parents have been allowed to see them. A very few of them have been released, mainly because they had been arrested by mistake, and mostly from them the horror stories have circulated. Inces sant beating and other forms of physi cal torture are being used, the military police having decided to put down the mask and show their brutality quite openly — if only to frighten others into good behavior.

A girl I know came to see me yes terday to tell me that had heard; that her boyfriend — a student ar rested a few weeks ago—was in hos pital, together with some other stu dents, and to ask me what could be done about him.

Then it is known that they are in the hands of the military police as well as all the other prisoners I've been talking about before, and not in Foot torture story hands of the navy. It has been said, even written in one Athens news paper, that some of them are in the hospital, having been so badly tor tured. It is horrible living in athens just now. The people around us live normal lives and yet we all know what is going on so near us. I am starting to realize what it must have been like to live under hitler's Germany, to know about the prison camps and to be quite powerless to do anything to help.

We know that any attempt on our part, instead of helping the condi tions of prisoners, will only end in putting us in jail as well—and so we just sit, getting more and more des perate and hopeless and with resent ment and hate gathering in our hearts.

There are so many prisoners who are being tortured just now—never before in such — that the usual torturers are not sufficient to go around torturers are not sufficient to go around, and I feel sure all the time —and a new generation of sadist is born. Why do I write all this to you? Perhaps to let off steam more than for any other reason, because I know by now how little foreign Foot torture story can do. And yet I keep hoping that some new way will be found.

Perhaps Foot torture story might think of someting else that I haven't thought of, but which might help.
