Are there Halachic resources or books that can be recommended to a frum person who will be in a jail outside of Israel (and such country does not respect religious/human rights enough to provide kosher food or allow him not to do required manual labor on shabbat without further punishment) for a period of time?

    Not specifically your case, but Machane Yisra'el (by the author of Chafets Chayyim) is written for Russian soldiers and might have some relevance

  • Also not a real answer but Aish.com posted this video about a man who kept Shabbat in a prison camp in Siberia for 20 years last night and it seems rather apropos aish.com/sp/so/… Commented Aug 12, 2019 at 22:16
