Abstract
This is a study of seven men that have suffered from a cruel punishment. The punishment involved getting their ear/ears cut off, prison with more torture and their families being deported from their homes to another town.

This is a study of seven men that have suffered from a cruel punishment. The punishment involved getting their ear/ears cut off, prison with more torture and their families being deported from their homes to another town.

I went to Iraq and met with the men in person and did interviews with them to understand the effect of the punishment on their personalities, and how the punishment have influenced their lives and interaction with other people in the society and around them.

The study focuses on their suffering and how they have been able to live with this stigma. The method the study has used is the kvalitative method that involved interviewing them in their country Iraq and analyse their answers and then come to the results. My study was between 26 of March 2004 to 26 of April 2004.

My study is based on the theory of social interaction and especially the symbolic interaction theories of G.H. Mead, H. Blumer and E.Goffman. This study has explained the effect of the stigma in their interaction with other people and it's effect on their inside, and the study had came to many results which explain and summerize the state of the victims. These results reflected the size of the suffering of these men inflicted on them by Saddams regime. With this study I hope I can make the victims voices heard. (Less)
