Papers from Caxias Prison by Saúl Nunes – Caxias

During the 1966 arrest in Caxias Saúl Nunes, a member of the Popular Action Front (FAP), seeking to exercise his memory, did exercises such as writing the latin names of plants as he had learned at school or the winners of the Olympic Games of 1948, 1952, 1956, 1960 and 1964. Or even write all the german words he knew. Interestingly the first two words are “Freiheit” (Freedom) and “Sterben” (Dying).
