Exile tells of torture
in Argentine prison

5/$30 REATE
On your College Ring


Blindfolded, starved and beaten,
Carlos Sanabria spent three months in
1977 in an Argentine prison lying on the
floor with his hands tied behind his
back, "always waiting for another
session of torture."
In the concentration camp, Sanabria
said he was often strapped naked to a
metallic bed and given electric shocks.
The current passing through electrodes
attached to his head and scrotum
caused his muscles to tighten and
prevented him from breathing, he said.
THE ONLY thing that kept him
going, Sanabria said, was the hope of
seeing his parents and child again.
Sanabria, 28, described his experien-
ce as a torture victim in a plushly car-
peted conference room during a sym-
posium on torture, medical practice,
and medical ethics at the Washington
Hilton in January.
The conference, part of the annual
meeting of the American Association
for the Advancement of Science, was
hosted by the chairman of Amnesty In-
ternational's Medical Capacity Com-
mittee. The committee, Dr. Michael.
Nelson explained, has been working for
more than two years to prevent torture
and to aid "prisoners of conscience"
throughout the world.
REPORTS OF torture are in-
creasing, said Nelson. In 1981, Amnesty
International compiled reports of tor-
ture in 34 countries in every major con-
tinent, including Africa, North and
South America, Asia, Europe and the
Middle East. Nelson said incidents of
torture may be under-reported because
"we only hear of the victims who have
Sanabria, a former tire salesman,
said he was arrested at work by Argen-
tine soldiers. He never learned of the
charges against him, but said he
believes he was seized because he ac-
tively supported democracy in a coun-
try ruled by a military dictatorship.
Sanabria, who was 23 at the time, was
tortured for three months immediately
after his abduction, and was im-
prisoned for two-and-a-half years.
SANABRIA, WHO said he had never
used violence to promote his political

beliefs, said he couldn't believe that the
abusive guards in the concentration
camp were not genetically different
from himself.
But torturers are not inherently
sadistic individuals, said a Canadian
psychiatrist who testified at the sym-
Dr. Frederico Allodi, who has seen
100 torture victims and studied
holocaust literature, said most tor-
turers are trained for a task they find
distasteful. They carry it out, reasoning
that "rotten apples" must be
SANABRIA ALSO said that during
his captivity, clandestine contact with
other prisoners helped him survive.
One time, he said, he was placed in a
room with another blindfolded prisoner
and they let each other know they were
not alone by clicking their fingernails.
After he was released in 1979,
Sanabria settled in Seattle with his wife
and child. As part of his rehabilitation,
he met with other former political
prisoners to talk about his experiences.
"We can share our frustrations," he
said, "and understand without having
to describe (our feelings)."
SANABRIA SAID he was able' to
recover from the physical abuse he suf-
fered while in prison, but that it took
longer to recover from the
psychological damage.
"When I left the prison in October,
1979, I acted like a robot, only going
where I was ordered to go. I had a com-
plete lack of initiative," he said.
"I was in this country 15 days before I
left my house on my own to buy cigaret-
tes," he continued, "but, once I began
taking small initiatives, I felt comfor-
table watching my condition improve."
AFTER SANABRIA was released
from prison, he pieced together the fate
of his wife and daughter. His wife had
been imprisoned and released, around
the same time as he had. His wife's
parents came for Sanabria's daughter
who had been left behind after both
Sanabria and his wife were abducted.
BOTH SANABRIA and his wife were
exiled to the United States. Sanabria
said he never gave up his belief in
