There in my little office I read bastily scribbled letters smuggled out of totalitarian regimes by men and women who were risking imprisonment to inform the outside world of what was happening to them. 
在我狭小的办公室里,我读着那些从极权主义政权那里偷运出来的潦草的信件,那些男女们冒着被监禁的风险告知外界他们里面发生了些什么。
I saw photographs of those who had disappeared without trace, sent to Amnesty by their desperate families and friends.
我看到了那些已经消失的毫无踪迹的人们的照片,那是被他们绝望无助的家人与朋友们寄到Amnesty这的。
 I read the testimony of torture victims and saw pictures of their injuries.
我读着这些被拷问的受害者的证词,看着他们伤口的照片。
 I opened handwritten, eye-witness accounts of summary trials and executions, of kidnappings and rapes.
我打开了由目击者手写的对于绑架案以及强奸案的审讯和处决的草草的描述。
Many of my co-workers were ex-political prisoners, people who had been displaced from their homes, or fled into exile, because they had the temerity to speak against their government. 
我的许多同事以前都是政治犯,他们或是被赶出家门,或是被驱逐出国,因为他们敢于批判政府。
Visitors to our office included those who had come to give information, or to try and find out what had happened to those who they had left behind.
来我们办公室的访客有那些给我们提供消息的人,也有试图找出那些曾在这里待过的人到底发生了什么的人。
I shall never forget the African torture victim, a young man no older than I was at the time, who had become mentally ill after all he had endured in his homeland.
我将永远不会忘记那个非籍拷问受害者,一个还没我当时那么大的年轻男子,在忍受了在他家乡所经历的一切之后而变得精神错乱。
He trembled uncontrollably as he spoke into a video camera about the brutality inflicted upon him.
当他在对一台摄像机诉说着那些被强行施加到他身上的暴行时,他无法抑制地颤抖着。
 He was a foot taller than I was, and seemed as fragile as a child. 
他比我高一英尺,却似乎和小孩一般脆弱。
I was given the job of escorting him back to the underground station afterwards, and this man whose life had been shattered by cruelty took my hand with exquisite courtesy, and wished me future happiness.
之后,我被要求陪护他到地铁站,而这个生活已经被残忍行为无情粉碎的男子满含礼貌地握着我的手,并祝我未来幸福。
