"There were no beds and no sheets so I slept on the floor with the other men. The toilet was a hole in the floor, and it overflowed everyday. At night the rats and roaches came through it, and sometimes a snake. Our food was beans once a day, and it was always filled with insects and worms. We got a pail of water every other day; it was for drinking, but it was so dirty it made us sick... Many months and many guards went by. Most of them would call me negro azul [blue-black, because of his dark skin]... I was very thin by then, and it was very easy for them to pull down my pants."
