"Savored every sentence with a mix of tearful reactions: anger, laughter but always sadness. Fort-Dimanche, the epitome of the absurb, so true yet hard to believe. Thanks for keeping the memory green by exposing this awful truth".

"…This book is a moving, inspiring and courageous story. I was totally amazed by the strength, courage and will power of the prisoners. I was also very moved and mesmerized by Patrick’s courage and bravery, especially knowing that he had lost so much along this tortuous journey".

"…I could not close your book once I started to read it".
Fritz Martelly

The sole firsthand account published on the Duvaliers’ political prisoners, has already found a place among the notable memoirs since it was first published in French in 1996 as Fort-Dimanche, Fort-la-Mort.

The outcry of a rare survivor among countless victims claimed by the Haitian regime of the Duvaliers, this testimonial spans over the author's nearly six years of detention in Casernes Dessalines and Fort-Dimanche, two military barracks trans formed by the Duvaliers - father and son - into political prisons.

Patrick Lemoine’s memoirs capture the triumph of life over death; the power of the human spirit to foster determination, strength, and hope in the absence of justice or a judicial system; and the resolve to emerge from death even when death is the sole meaning given to life.

About the book...
Le Nouvelliste, PAP, Haiti - Jean Desquiron
"This book is an implacable referendum against dictator ship. Its sole ideology is to proclaim freedom of though and expression. This book must be read by anyone who wants to know, especial ly by the young who should know, because it is difficult for them to imagine the unthinkable".

Haiti-Observateur, New York, USA
"Written in a soft literary style, yet concise, detailed and captiva ting […], this book remains the most acerbic discourse on the vicious cruelty of a political mass mired in cynicism".

Jonathan Demme, Filmaker and Producer, USA
"Fort-Dimanche, Dungeon of Death is a vivid memory of the most horrendous kind of mental and physical cruelties that we can inflict on our fellow man. Patrick Lemoine's harrowing tale about his years of imprisonment in one of the worst 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".

Yves-Robert Dougé, M.D., Pour Haiti, Paris, France
It is a disturbing testimonial on the physical and moral degrada tion of human beings orchestrated by the militia of a totalitarian regime. Patrick Lemoine’s surgical surgical descrip tion of a long descent into Duvalier’s dungeons leaves us com pletely numb. Other books have been written on the subject, but none offers such a detailed account of this historically useful legacy.

Elsie Ethéart, Haiti en Marche, Miami, 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 occurring again…
