The testimony of Maria Enriqueta Hernandez is of a singular value, since she is an inmate who lived through the earthquake of September 19, 2017 in the female prison of Tepepan. She tells that the force of the earth moved her from side to side and as she ran to the meeting point “could hear the walls and windows thundering”. She is grateful that among the inmates they helped and consoled themselves, as well as outside the prison, the people demonstrated their solidarity, a fact for which she loves Mexico.
