87. A year before this photograph was taken, there was a pigsty here. This is where Dini Korul was tortured. Later, the shabby building fell apart, but Dini’s children still remember how their mother, nearly dead, was rescued from there after the brutal torture.

The villagers, who never apologized to Dini, also remember that attack. It is my fourth visit to the place. The local men who took part in the torture look at me and my camera with mistrust.
Not long ago, I learned that Monica Paulus, a local human rights activist who works with me, had told everybody that I was a doctor. She said I had visited Dini with drugs, taking her photos only for medical reports.
“This way it would be safer for everyone,” Monica said.
