Summary for The Prisoner Who Wore Glasses
The prisoner who wore glasses was one of the members of Span One. They were the best thieves and liars in the camp, all who were political prisoners. This prison was the type of prison you got knocked down with an iron bar for misbehaving. Their warden was Hennetjie and he would punish the whole Span even though Brille, the prisoner who wore glasses, confessed to it. Brille was a kind hearted man who tried to make a living for him, his wife, and his twelve children. Warder Hennetjie caught him stealing grapes which is why he was in this prison. But the warder had a secret too. Inmate Brille wasn't the only thief! Brille caught Hennetjie stealing fertilizer, and the warder bribed him to keep his mouth shut, but Brille couldn't do that. Instead Brille bosses Hennetjie around giving him a taste of his own medicine. Hennetjie understood what being a warden meant. He put down his revolver and began to dig alongside with Span One. Brille made this happen.
