Sinop Fortress Prison, Sinop Reviews

  • Old prison

  • Very impressive.

  • O şartlarda kalan, o zindanlarda zincire vurulan insanları düşünmek bile insanın içini acıtırken, o insanlardan bazılarının da kimbilir o zindana düşecek ne canlara kıydığını düşünmek hem yorucu, hem ağır. Kesinlikle görülmeli, gökyüzünü dikenli tellerin ardından görmenin hüznü hissedilmeli. Etkileyiciden ziyade ürkütücü ve üzücü bir ziyaret oldu benim için.

  • Selçuklular döneminde inşa edilen Sinop Cezaevi, 1997 yılına kadar siyasi mahkumların gönderildiği cezaevi olarak varlığını sürdürdü. Müzeye dönüştürülen hapishanede Refik Halit Karay, Sabahattin Ali ve Necip Fazıl Kısakürek gibi isimler kalmış.

  • Gezip görmek gerek. Rutubet nem ve 15 kişi bi oda da kalmış. Hele ki zindan odaları berbat 5 dk tahammül edilmez. Kaçmak imkansıza yakın. Ufak bi tavsiyem mahkum odalarındaki ranza ve eşyalar keşke olduğu gibi kalsaydı daha güzel olabilirdi. Odalar boş.
