The prisoners are mocked through interpreters, ordered to strip naked, left naked and cold (standing up) for hours, washed, shaved bare, issued prison clothing, and forced to run naked through freezing cold showers before they're allowed to clothe themselves. They are then tattooed with ID numbers.
