Alcatraz

Alcatraz

Alcatraz ist eine Felseninsel in der San Francisco Bay. Dort befand sich von 1934-1963  das berühmt berüchtige Hochsicherheitsgefängnis. Unter anderem war hier Al Capone inhaftiert. Das Gefängnis galt aufgrund des eiskalten Wassers in der Bucht und der gefährlichen Strömungen als absolut ausbruchsicher. Trotzdem gab es 19 Fluchtversuche, die allerdings alle scheiterten.
