About this book: »Fifty years of struggle and deter­mi­na­tion along with stead­fast­ness in his beliefs. Through this book one relives the expe­ri­ence of Fawzi Habashi – tear by tear, and whip by whip. One feels and relives the pain, anguish, smiles, laughter, and the sorrow…« Ahmad Ismail in El-Ahaly (oppo­si­tion) News­paper, Egypt
»The book […] is an account of the trials and tribu­la­tions of Engineer Fawzi Habashi who spent a good part of his life within a number of diffe­rent prisons across Egypt.« Magda El-Guindy in Al-Ahram (state owned) News­paper, Egypt
»They summoned Fawzi and ordered him to confess as to the names of the greater party leadership within the prison camp. He was barba­ri­cally tortured, and towards the end of this inten­sive torture session he took off his watch along with his wedding ring and handed it to the prison admi­ni­s­t­ra­tion offi­cers so that they could send it to his wife in prison. This was Fawzi’s way of indi­ca­ting that he was willing to die before confes­sing. This was a clear and simple sign to the offi­cers who were tortu­ring him that they would not be able to extract any infor­ma­tion from him.« Fakhri Labib, acti­vist and co-inmate, writer and trans­lator.
