When I was on the way to my office I heard a story of this young man



on BBC radio.

See the AFP report: NKorean tells of horrifying childhood spent in prison camp

He seems to have written a book under the title Escape to the Outside World.

Does anyone know where I can get this book?

Shin said his father had been arrested in 1965 because two of his brothers had fled to South Korea.

As a reward for good work, his father was allowed to marry a female inmate but they were together for just five days before being separated, and rarely saw each other again.



Horrible. Sired, born, raised and exploited as a slave. And that's no bad memory from the past. It's happening right now.

I heard that story only on BBC World radio (648 kHz in Germany). They interviewed Shin Dong-Hyuk and talked with him about his book.
 
I don't like that guy. The tiny ad agrees with me.
