Barn May 03, Doug Bradshaw rated it it was amazing. The place is North Kor A picture is worth a thousand words, even when that picture is an amateurish drawing. Yes, they do have nuclear weapons in NK, but they probably would never use them. Shin is the one who reported them to 5 stars The drawing in question evsdare a fourteen-year-old boy, stripped naked and suspended above a charcoal fire. Nor do Shin or Harden.

Picture from documentary Camp 14 Imagine the Unimaginable Imagine growing up with no comprehension, let alone experience of love or friendship, where every day you struggle for scraps of food, rest, and warmth, striving to avoiding abuse, imprisonment, and maybe execution. Where you view your own mother as competition for survival, rather than a source of love, security, and comfort. Where redemption through snitching and hard work is essential for survival, and you are inured to the punishment Picture from documentary Camp 14 Imagine the Unimaginable Imagine growing up with no comprehension, let alone experience of love or friendship, where every day you struggle for scraps of food, rest, and warmth, striving to avoiding abuse, imprisonment, and maybe execution.
Where you are too broken, ignorant, and worthless for the authorities to bother brainwashing you with political propaganda. Extreme deprivation and brutality were all he knew. The camp had to cleanse three generations. To What? For prisoners with no knowledge of anything beyond the camp walls, the desire, let alone the possibility of escape, rarely arises.
It is literally unimaginable. Those who do escape are likely to find themselves in either China or South Korea. And then what? So much for hard-won freedom. In SK, only the language is familiar, and even that has diverged significantly in recent decades. Truth, and the Telling of it This is a true story. There are many defectors from NK, some of whom escaped from prisons or labour camps, but Shin is thought to be the only person born in a camp to escape from that camp, which makes his experience more extreme.
This should be a really exciting, but agonising story. Furthermore, Shin changed other aspects of his story during the writing of the book, and again after it was published. But as a reader, I was left unsure of the truth. See also John Bowlby on attachment theory. But far worse has been going on in NK, for twice as long as the Soviet Gulags, with hundreds of thousands of human victims. International pressure is half-hearted at best.
Paranoia is the norm in defectors, and a real barrier to assimilation. Unemployment, depression, and suicide are shockingly high in refugees from NK. Nor do Shin or Harden. How do you force a nuclear power to do anything? Should aid to starving people be conditional on improved human rights?
Perhaps that impasse is the greatest tragedy, the greatest failing. The Ten Laws of Camp 14 1. Do not try to escape. No more than two prisoners can meet together.
Do not steal. Guards must be obeyed unconditionally. Anyone who see a fugitive or suspicious figure must promptly report him. Prisoners must watch each other and report any suspicious behaviour immediately. Prisoners must more than fulfil the work assigned to them each day. Beyond the workplace, there must be no intermingling between the sexes for personal reasons.
Prisoners must genuinely repent of their errors. Prisoners who violate the laws and regulations of the camp will be shot immediately. The devil really is in the chilling details, not included above.
