Fort-Dimanche, Dungeon of Death is a vivid testimony of the most horrendous kind of mental and physical cruelties that we can inflict on our fellow men. Patrick Lemoine’s harrowing tale about his years of imprisonment in one of the worse dungeons in the world will stand as a constant reminder that our basic freedoms, when taken for granted, can be trampled by the very ones elected or selected among us to be sentinels of society. Jonathan Demme, filmmaker and producer, USA This book is an implacable referendum against dictatorship. Its sole ideology is to proclaim freedom of thought and expression. This book must be read by anyone who wants to know, especially by the young who should know, because it is difficult for them to imagine the unthinkable... Jean Desquiron, Le Nouvelliste, Port-au-Prince, Haiti It is a disturbing testimonial on the physical and moral degradation of human beings orchestrated by the militia of a totalitarian regime. Patrick Lemoine's surgical description of a long descent into Duvalier's dungeons leaves us completely numb. Other books have been written on the subject, but none offers such a detailed account of this historical legacy. Yves-Robert Dougé, M.D., Pour Haiti, Paris, France Written in a soft literary style, yet concise, detailed, and captivating [...], this book remains the most acerbic discourse on the vicious cruelty of a political class mired in cynicism and debauchery...! Haiti-Observateur, New York, USA It is necessary to read this book in its entirety, even when you are tempted to hide it, to bury it, as if it would prevent forever such horrible acts from occuring again… Elsie Ethéart, Haiti en Marche, Miami, USA
