The chapter examines in particular depth the testimonial literature written by political prisoners detained at Barberousse-Serkadji, a prison whose momentous history parallels the colonial history of Algeria. The testimonies, memoirs, letters, poems, plays and novels describing political detention during this period shed light on the unique forms of political memory preserved in prison writing, and on the emancipatory role that writing itself can play in circumstances of extreme duress.",
