Escape From Camp 14

Escape From Camp 14
Blaine Harden

Escape from Camp 14 is about Shin Dong-Hyuk's life in North Korea's labor camp and how he managed to escape. I have read three books about life in North Korea, but this was the first time I had known of North Korea's gulag or forced labor camps.

Reading about what Shin Dong-Hyuk has had to endure and how people in the camp, guards and prisoners alike, behave felt like a nightmare.

It is disconcerting that such a place exists in this world, but it is something we should all be aware of.
