The Diary of Prisoner 17326

John K. Stutterheim

Fordham University Press

After being separated from his mother, the author and his brother are forced to settle in at another labour camp and it is here that the author reveals that he possesses a secret diary on which his prisoner number, 17326 is inscribed. The author details his new work in the fields in this chapter as well as the brutal treatment both he and those he worked with endured. The author relates a striking story in which two thirteen year old boys were savagely beaten and interrogated for the act of crawling under barbed wire to try to obtain food.
