I was truly appalled at how Iraqis were treated in prison.

I was so shocked at how the guards acted like animals and beat the prisoners. The women were hit continuously with a whip, beaten up, burned, electrocuted, raped I could hardly believe that these women survived! I know if I was in Baladiyat, I could never have survived that kind of torment!

They were truly brave. I recoiled in horror at the descriptions of their wounds; their backs would look like a mess of freshly cut flesh with blood oozing out. But what really touched my heart was the love these women had for each other.

They would encourage each other to stay alive and keep praying so that they can see their families once again. If it was not for the friendship of Samara, I think Mayada would never have survived.

Not only did the women, along with other prisoners, bear the physical scars of their torture sessions, but their minds can never rid the memories either.

They are mentally scarred for life!

The Shadow Women of Cell 52 2. The Four Black Doors 3. In , Saddam married another woman, Samira Shahbandar , while still married to Sajida.

Sajida was enraged, and Uday Hussein, son of Saddam and Sajida, was also angry over his father's new wife. Uday believed that his inheritance was endangered by the new wife.

He also took it as an insult to his mother.

Uday believed that it was Kamel who introduced Saddam and Samira, and that he arranged their meetings. Some say the murder of Gegeo was a request of Sajida.

Although her husband married another woman, Sajida and Saddam never divorced.

Sajida hardly ever appeared in public with her husband, so for many years her existence was obscure to the Iraqi people. However, when rumors surfaced that Saddam had married another woman, and that his family life was now strained, more pictures and videos appeared in the Iraqi media of Saddam and Sajida, as well as them with their children.I recommend this book to everyone because it truly opens your eyes and mind to what our world is.

I suggest it to some one who has already read that and wants to know more.
