In Order to live by Yeonmi Park

Post by florida johny »

In Order to live by Yeonmi Park. She tells how she and her family had to escape North Korea in the early 1990s.
It was well written and it describes the Hell North Korea was at the time where over a million people starved to death and you would be put in a labor camp if you disagreed with the leader on anything.
It describes how neighbors were trained to spy on each other. It also describes her escape to China and then to South Korea.

LOL

If I write about anything Korean, I found it always useful to add the Korean original name to avoid misunderstandings.
Transcriptions are not always clear. Names are often very similar etc.

In this case

Park Yeonmi (a person - Mr. Mrs. Ms. = 씨)

박연미씨

Yeonmi Park (green area)

연미공원
