PENAL COLONY: a settlement used to exile prisoners and separate them from the general populace by placing them in a remote location, often an island or distant colonial territory.
“In the Penal Colony” (oder “In der Strafkolonie” auf Deutsch) is a short story by Franz Kafka. The story is set in an unnamed penal colony. “In the Penal Colony” describes the last use of an elaborate torture and execution device that carves the sentence of the condemned prisoner on his skin before letting him die, all in the course of twelve hours.
