I have been discussing North Korean history with my family since this class began and just recently has my father told me that a North Korean has escaped. This particular escapee told sources that the North Korean government held experiments on human bodies that in essence mimicked those carried out by the Nazis during the Holocaust.
I do remember watching a documentary on the North Korean prison camps and how one generation's persecution led to the subsequent persecution of two generations following the first in order to completely 'wipe out' the ‘rebels.’ While these stories and other related accounts do indeed stem from facts and truths, I am a bit hesitant to deem these arguments as being completely valid.
Well, my question is, has anyone else heard about the escape in the papers recently? While the horror stories about the torture camps and experiment labs are not new, I do not believe they have ever been completely addressed. It would be interesting to see if anyone has or finds any articles pertaining to the information above.
