The Harry Potter series is known as a family-friendly franchise to most. Even with the presence of Voldemort and the Death Eaters, the perception of the Wizarding World is that it is a happy place to be - Azkaban is a very dark exception. The wizarding prison is arguably the worst place to be on Earth because it is constantly inhabited by the Dementors. While the prison has changed in present times, the popular opinion of Azkaban remains the same as it was during Harry Potter's school days.
It's worth taking a look at how Azkaban has evolved over its many centuries of active status and how life is supposed to be there for inmates, Aurors, Dementors, and anyone else who has stepped foot on the island.
