Case 67

The Battle of Alcatraz

*** Content Warning: gun violence, suicide ***

In the 1940s, Alcatraz Federal Penitentiary in the San Francisco Bay was a state-of-the-art facility. Deemed to be completely escape-proof, convicts from all over the United States who were regarded as dangerous and incapable of rehabilitation were often transferred to the gloomy island prison.

Despite its reputation, on May 2, 1946, several armed inmates embarked on a plan to break free from Alcatraz. Their mission would have deadly consequences.
