For decades, thousands of patients were hospitalized forcibly, without diagnosis of mental illness, in an enormous hospice in the city of Barbacena, Minas Gerais, southeast of Brazil. There they were tortured, raped and killed without anyone caring about their fate. Famous journalists, in the 1960s and 70s, made reports denouncing the ill-treatment. None of them – as Daniela Arbex does now – could tell the whole story. Sixty thousand died. Some managed to survive. And they now tell a little about the terrifying history of the Cologne Hospital.
