One of those nights, I had a dream about Adel. I did not remember the whole dream when woke up in the morning. I saw Adel has stood next to the bathroom when was walking in the ground at the time of taking in fresh air. Iraqi soldier, Abujasm, went toward him and they began speaking with each other. It was like Abujasm wanted to go to the bathroom. Seyyed Mohammad Abujasm was one of the soldiers who named Adel ‘snail’ and ‘lizard’, and tormented him and a large number of prisoners.

After being counted in the morning and having breakfast, I picked my toothbrush and toothpaste and went to the toilet. I was brushing when my toothbrush was suddenly released my hold, fell into the toilet bowel, and got stuck in it. The Iraqis did not give us Fils for a while, therefore we could not buy our needed supplies.

Mansour Mollahzadeh was one of the members of the base. His father had granted us one of his shops which was near the local base. We used it as the center of our Islamic Association and hold our Quran-reciting meetings there. At sunset, along with neighborhood people, whether the young or the teenagers, we gathered in front of the base and all together went to the mosque for performing congregational prayer.

Manouchehr had broken ears and for being more comfortable, reported the news of quarters and prisoners’ conversations to the Iraqis. I said to myself that what the hell I have done. But surely the Iraqis hated anyone or anything that cause order and spirituality among the captives. On that day, the camp commander came.

Smoker prisoners could neglect whatever but the cigarettes. Iraqis gave ‘Winston’ cigarettes to the prisoners. Tobacco and cigarette papers were separated. With greed, the smokers wrapped tobacco with papers and then wetted the end of paper with their tongue to stick together.

We queued.

Memories of Iranian Released POW, Seyyed Jamal Setarehdan
A few days had passed, and I had seen a few of the prisoners sat together and talked. One of them was Akbar Karami, deputy of Meghdad brigade. They all walked together and exchanged some words when we were taken outdoors to take in fresh air. Then, little by little, I found out that Mahdi Palang, Azizi, who was from Kangavar, and Heydari, one of commanders of Kerend-e Gharb battalions, were friends of Karami. Azizi was an old man and religious. He always repeated the name of God as a prayer. I realized they are trying to control and guide other prisoners.

We were on the way a few hours until reached a camp. Like Jalula camp, I saw soldiers are waiting for us with cables and batons, when got off the IFA truck. My arms and back still hurt because of previous blows of cable and baton in the Jalula camp. I took my hand in front of my face. I received a dozen blows of batons until I reached to the entrance of the quarters. We all were sat down in five queues. One of the officers came in and stood next to us.
