Escape from Camp 14 by Blaine Harden

Shin Dong-hyuk is the only person known to have escaped a North Korean prison camp who was born there.  His experiences are unique because he was not exposed to the outside world or the rest of North Korea and their worship of their “Dear Leader”.  Shin’s road to a normal life has been difficult and is still ongoing but Escape from Camp 14 is an inspirational book and will hopefully bring more awareness to the atrocities being committed by the North Korean government.
