      ... centre and less dangerous prisoners. The more troublesome prisoners were kept at Ile St. Joseph. On the almost inaccessible Devil's Island political prisoners such as Alfred Dreyfus were held in isolation and his hut can still be seen there. The prisoner who became world famous was Henri Charriere, immortalized in the movie Papillon, for supposedly being the only convict ever to have escaped.
