Summary/Abstract: The study seeks the answer to one single question: what is the truth in the stories that accompanied Gedeon Ráday’s activity in Szeged (1869-1872) and subsequently worked their way into scientific studies. These stories consider the elimination of the outlaw world by Ráday as the result of unprecedented cruelty, regular tormenting of captives, starving and beating. The present analysis lays special emphasis on the condition of the cells in the Szeged dungeon, on captives' diseases, on their medical attendance and nutrition, finally it analyses their everyday lives and chances for survival.
