There was NO WAY out for these poor women once they were captured.
It was not only designed to torture women, but big, strong men as well. The rooms in which the men were held were no different from the women. The bars on the cells door gave ventilation to the prisoners, but the bars were purposely made very close together and very sharp so that the strong men could not get their hands through the bars and try to escape. People would become so confused as to what was happening to their friends or loved ones. One minute they were standing or walking with them..... then within minutes.....they DISAPPEARED!!! For the unlucky souls that was entrapped, there was LITTLE if ANY hope they could escape.......a very dark and horrific life (if they lived) lay ahead for them.
