The boomerang of violence

“I could not reconcile with my dad. It was bad for me. He was beating me”. Ion shakes his hands, plays with his fingers, bends them. His answers are short, he often does not find the words, though he is looking nervous. However, he responds well. Bored, but in a good way.

I went down to the train station and started walking to the only center in Moldova that advises those who were aggressing their family members. At 10:00, I was going to meet with Ruslan, a 33-year-old man who was sentenced to two years of imprisonment because he hit his wife.

Ruslan is waiting for me in front of the center. Gray tracksuit, an assorted cap, unshaven face, brown eyes, calm eyesight. I put out my hand for a handshake.
