Breaking the Myth of North Korea

As a child, Yeonmi Park lived as part of North Korea’s elite until the regime punished her father for selling items to China and banished him and his family to the northern part of the country. Poverty, starvation, and “disappearances” became a part of everyday life, and Park’s family made a daunting escape from North Korea through China and Mongolia in 2007. Now a student and author, Park urges the international community to take a stand against the Kim Jong-Un regime’s human rights abuses.
