For freedom in North Korea

  The recent book, Escape from Camp 14 by Blaine Harden is about Shin Dong-hyuk, the only North Korean known to have escaped from a “total-control zone” prison camp and gained his freedom. Born in the camp, Shin reports of a culture where fear and hunger drive out the most basic instincts like maternal care and filial love. 

Humanitarian organizations report that there are likely as many as 200,000 people, including children, who live in near starvation conditions, in fear of torture and execution. North Korea, which claims the camps do not exist, is a totalitarian country isolated by self-destructive ideology that uses the threat of incarceration for entire families to keep its population under mental control.
