Summary
This book is the result of stubborn and creative work that turned nearly three years of imprisonment into resistance and struggle. This is the story of Zehra Dogan, a Kurdish contemporary activist, journalist and artist, convicted of a drawing and thrown into prison. number 5 of Diyarbakir, in eastern Turkey. A prison inscribed in the history of the country as a place of persecution, but also of resistance and struggle of the Kurdish people. These drawings, smuggled out of prison number 5, were made by Zehra Dogan despite the lack of material, defying walls and prohibitions. How can a prison - despite efforts to isolate and break up these women and men, despite humiliating and violent practices, despite oppression and torture - become, thanks to solidarity and collective work,a place of reconstruction? Ideas cannot be held captive. They find their way, they slip through the cracks, through the barred windows and the cracks in the walls. They avoid nimble barbed wire. They reach the outside of the prison like branches of ivy. And in the end, they get to us
