Escape From Camp 14

December 2nd, 2014 · No Comments · Book Group, Books, City Library, Events, Main Branch


This is the true story of  Shin Dong-Hyuk, the only person born and raised in a North Korean prison camp to escape to the West.  In Escape from Camp 14, acclaimed journalist Blaine Harden tells the story of Shin Dong-Hyuk and through the lens of Shin’s life unlocks the secrets of the world’s most repressive totalitarian state. Shin knew nothing of civilized existence-he saw his mother as a competitor for food, guards raised him to be a snitch, and he witnessed the execution of his own family. Through Harden’s harrowing narrative of Shin’s life and remarkable escape, he offers an unequaled inside account of one of the world’s darkest nations and a riveting tale of endurance, courage, and survival.
