Escape from Camp 14: One Man's Remarkable Odyssey from North Korea to Freedom in the West by Blaine Harden
a heartbreaking story. I am very ignorant to what is going on in N.
Korea. This young man's story was an educational moment for me. We
learn about why N. Koreans are put into these camps. I assumed (with my
Western mind) that they committed crimes, but this isn't the case at all.
In N. Korea, you truly are visited by the sins of your father. I am
going to continue to read more about N. Korea and try to get a broder
view of what goes on there.
This biography was written by Blaine Harden an author and journalist who reports for PBS and Frontline. Not only do we hear Shin's story about how he escaped the camp but we also learn some of the inner workings of N. Korea.
Shin Dong Hyuk now lives in the states and is a human rights activist.
