Note the covered walkways on the left and the cupolas (essential for air circulation). All of the beauty found in the flower beds (planted and tended by unpaid "work boys") still could not compensate for the fact that people should not have been isolated and forgotten. And, once we had dehumanized these people (who were our sons and daughters, brothers and sisters), it was easy to allow the conditions of neglect, overcrowding and abuse to continue and grow.
