第一批囚犯抵达恶魔岛联邦监狱 (Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary)

你会把一群公认为最危险的囚犯关在哪里呢?在1934年时,这些人会被送到称为「恶魔岛」 (The Rock) 的地方。这个地方的正式名称应该是「恶魔岛联邦监狱」,在1934811日正式开始启用,第一批囚犯也在那一天到达。这座监狱一共囚禁了高度危险的囚犯达29年之久。之所以被称为恶魔岛,是因为这是位在旧金山湾中央的一座岛屿。不过,现在你可以搭着渡船到岛上参观,看看那些囚犯居住的地方。

Where do you put a group of prisoners considered "most dangerous?" In 1934, they went to a place called "The Rock." Officially called Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary, "The Rock" opened for business on August 11, 1934, when the first group of federal prisoners arrived. For 29 years the federal prison system kept high-security prisoners in lockup there. It's called "The Rock" because it's an island in the middle of the San Francisco Bay. Today you can take a ferryboat and visit the actual cells where inmates lived.
