If the Walls Could Speak

Anna Müller

Oxford University Press

The book ends by following the lives of some of the women after they were released from prison as they rebuilt a sense of security and their new lives. Most women stayed as much as possible inside their private worlds—among friends, family, and memories—and tried to come to terms with their experiences. As they reconstructed their private worlds, many former prisoners strove to remain invisible to state authorities, while maintaining visibility as former prisoners among their former cellmates. By the time this book is published many of the women and men will have passed away. This is a book for them and about them.
