Dungeon Entrance at Hoa Lo Prison
The entrance to the so-called dungeon of Hoa Lo Prison. Used for solitary confinement and "special" treatment, these rooms were dark and small. Inmates were shackled in place in their cells. Hoa Lo Prison, also known sarcastically as the Hanoi Hilton during the Vietnam War, was originally a French colonial prison for political prisoners and then a North Vietnamese prison for prisoners of war. It is especially famous for being the jail used for American pilots shot down during the Vietnam War.
