Torture Instruments Collection of the Last French Executioner (73 pics)

A vast collection of macabre torture instruments owned by Fernand Meyssonnier – an executioner in French Algeria who helped to guillotine the heads off more than 200 people.


The collection of more than 350 items, including thumb screws, a hand-crusher, a guillotine and the pear-shaped instrument meant to be inserted into the victim's mouth and then slowly expanded during the questioning had been put up for sale after the man’s death in 2008 but the sale was cancelled after the numerous protests.

    #15 - I like the way it has a large cross at the top to constantly remind the victim that God loves them and that he is a caring and nurturing god.
