The book, complete with hand drawings, details the utter inhumanity of this communist regime. Sun Ok Yi is a made a prisoner, without trial and subjected to unimaginable torture; she is only one of many. North Korean Prison camps work on the principle of intimidation, degradation and a psychological and physical wearing down.
Work is from 5am until midnight to meet unattainable quotas. It is boring and dangerous. Punishments are barbaric and often lethal. These include beatings, and solitary confinemnt in sub zero temperatures, frequently leaving the sufferer unable to walk. Pregnant prisoners, are forced to terminate, or if too late in the term, to watch their newborns killed.
Once you've read this book, you will never see the world in the same light again. I urge anyone with any concern for human rights, to read this and to act for justice.
Stay informed. Be outward looking rather than self focused. Inform yourself of human rights issues in the world and do your part

This is an amazing book. It is not written as a "sensational" piece but as a truthful and at times almost unbearable account but one which is given to inform us.Published 18 months ago by Annabel
