Shin Dong-hyuk is a human rights activist who detailed his experiences in a North Korean prison camp in the book “Escape from Camp 14.”
The North Korean defector joined today’s show to share how he has learned to live and even thrive as a survivor and to advocate for North Koreans who are still trapped in the hermit regime. He spoke to the “Morning Blaze” crew with the help of his wife, Leeann Roybal.
“When I was living there, I really had no idea whether or not it was normal,” Shin said through Roybal’s interpretation. “I would say the single most important reason why the Kim regime is still in power is thanks to the prison camps. … In order to keep your power and to stay in power, you have to continuously keep the people in fear and continue to torment them.”
