The 10 Commandments of North Korea’s Camp 14

I’ve previously mentioned Blaine Harden’s article,  Born in the Gulag: Why a North Korean Boy Sent His Own Mother to Her Death on the the account of Shin Dong-hyuk, the only child born into a North Korean gulag to escape.  Harden has now released a book on Shin’s amazing story...
