On Torture

From:

Vorbr├╝ggen, Meike, and Hans U. Baer.. "Humiliation: The Lasting Effect of Torture." Military Medicine 172 (Dec. 2007): 29-33. Academic Search Premier. EBSCO. 13 Mar. 2008.



The words of Jean Amery, a victim of torture, summarize the lasting effects of torture on the human mind, "Anyone who has been tortured remains tortured. Anyone who has suffered torture never again will be at ease in the world. Faith in humanity, already cracked by the first slap in the face, then demolished by torture, is never acquired again,"' Jean Amery, bom as Hans Maier in Austria in 1912, was tortured by the Nazis in Auschwitz, Buchenwaid, and Bergen Belsen, In his book At the Mind's Limit,^ which describes his experience as a torture victim in Auschwitz, he deals with one central topic, namely, the state of mind of a victim. Unfortunately, torture is a worldwide phenomenon that affects humans in nearly all cultures and countries, ranging from physical methods up to psychological persecution.
