The jail was designed to keep prisoners isolated and cut off from the outside world. The three-story structure has seven wings, each with three stories, and was designed to hold up to 693 prisoners. The prisoners were kept in solitary confinement in small, windowless cells, which were known as “cells” or “cages.” The conditions inside the jail were extremely harsh, and prisoners were subjected to inhumane treatment and torture.
