In Part I, Chapter 11, Captain Vevers questions Ginzburg. Vevers is a cold and calculating man. He antagonizes Ginzburg, calling her a traitor. He also tells Ginzburg her husband has already disowned her. Vevers has her locked up in the cellar, where he declares she will stay until she confesses to being a secret terrorist.

In keeping with the evils of the Soviet system, as well as their methods for punishment, Ginzburg is denied rights and thrown into a cellar prison until she confesses to being a terrorist, which is an elevation of the previous charges against her. Without a lawyer, or any legal recourse through being a Party member, Ginzburg has two choices: falsely confess, or suffer. Ginzburg refuses to sign something that isn't true and is imprisoned.
