Incarceration and Torture

From dungeon to penitentiary up to present-day correctional facility – the history of imprisonment has changed tremendously. 

Crime has existed for as long as mankind has, not so imprisonment. This only begins with prisons in monasteries: contrition instead of vengeance to return to the right path in life. In the 19th century, additionally to the idea of protecting the general public, the idea of resocializing prisoners emerged.
