In North Korea – Hoeryong’s Guard
Right here is the testimony of a former North Korean jail guard. His title is Ahn Myong Chol, and he served at Hoeryong Focus Camp, amongst different locations. He and his story are described by David Hawk in free-for-all on-line supplies.
Ahn, born in 1969 to a “good” (Celebration) household in Hangwon, served his obligatory navy service in 4 consecutive prisons from 1978 to 1994. His final task was Hoeryong, the one one of many 4 nonetheless operational.
Ahn’s father was a great man in different methods. In reality, he was caught doing one thing good. He gave meals to considered one of his neighbors with out permission. That is reactionary and subversive by NK authorities requirements. Realizing that his father was dealing with bother and so the entire household could be dragged into it, Ahn took his spouse throughout the Tumen to China. Ultimately he reached Seoul, the place he started to inform his story. It was a e-book, and even an affidavit earlier than the US Congress.
In 2002, when expertise allowed us to see sure truths about Hoeryong through satellite tv for pc, Ahn was there to establish what we had been seeing. We now know the placement and objective of every constructing within the jail advanced. Ahn might have been so conscious of these items resulting from his place as a truck driver.
Ahn confirms the shock one feels when first arriving at camp. Strolling skeletons. Dwarfs. Crippled in rags. It would not get higher over time. He knew that as much as 2,000 folks died every year within the camp from malnutrition. Most of them had been youngsters. Perhaps ten executions a 12 months, of individuals caught consuming harvest meals. No extra deaths, by blows, of prisoners who had not revered the manufacturing quotas.
The one meat folks ate got here from captured rats, snakes and frogs.
Marriage nearly utterly prohibited.
A pregnant girl was executed due to her being pregnant.
I don’t intend to “defame” North Korea or its authorities. The tales I inform come from credible eyewitnesses whose books are broadly revealed. The concept is compassion. And numerous prayer. God can inform you greater than you are able to do, however I believe that is a great begin.
