Then the inmates and staff members of the penitentiary made drawings, sketches or messages on paper and had them hung on the large fence at the front of the prison.

Now the same thing is happening, but all with flames in the context of De Warmste Week.

“The detainees and staff each write their own message on the flame and we hang it on the fence around the institution,” “We know from last time that hundreds of walkers walked past our Wall of Respect to read the messages. So we expect the same now. We want to show our solidarity with everyone outside the prison walls.”, says director Serge Rooman.
