The Human Face of Torture Dossier

Since the Spring of 2006, I've posted a series of features (either here or at Never in Our Names) intended to portray the human cost of torture by sharing the stories of those who've suffered directly as well as those stories of friends and loved ones of torture victims. This series is periodically updated.
