"The prison is little."
Translation:De gevangenis is klein.

And opvangen = to provide with shelter. :) But although that's also what a gevangenis does, I guess the name is linked to gevangen, not to opgevangen. FYI:
- to put people behind bars = mensen achter tralies zetten = mensen gevangen zetten
- the prisioner = de gevangene (lit. the caught/captured one)
