Description of Escape from camp 14 by Blaine Harden ePub
“Escape from Camp 14: One Man’s Remarkable Odyssey from North Korea to Freedom in the West” is a great book if you are interested in human rights, and/or stories of the stonch, barbarically ruled country of North Korea. Blaine Harden is the author of this wonderful book. In Escape from Camp 14, Blaine Harden’s best seller masterfully allows us to know Shin, not as a hero but as a man, by telling us a story that was done to him by the repressive government of North Korea and what he was forced to do to survive. Shin was born in Camp 14, the son to two political prisoners, and was condemned from birth to a life of hunger and misery in forced labor. Prisoners in the camp were not taught to value things like friendship and family. Shin’s higher power in the camp was food, the guards, and the government teachers, from many of whom he suffered sadistic beatings and torture. He was taught to inform on family and friends- and to feel indifference and no remorse for doing so. This was evident when one of his teachers beat to death a six-year-old classmate.
When Shin was 13 years old, he told the night guard of his school with another boy of the escape plan by his mother and brother, as informing was something he was taught to do from an early age, and he hoped to be rewarded. However, the school night guard took full credit for discovering the plan, and rather than being rewarded, Shin was arrested and guards tortured him for four days to extract more information, believing him to be part of the plan to escape. After approximately seven months spent in a tiny concrete prison cell, Shin and his father were forced to watch the public executions of Shin’s mother and brother.
At age 23, Shin decides to escape with fellow prisoner Park. Park attempted to go through an electric fence first but was fatally electrocuted. Shin managed to escape using Park’s body as a shield to ground the current, but still suffered severe burns and permanent scars when his legs slipped onto the lowermost wire as he crawled over Park’s body. After escaping, Shin broke into a nearby farmer’s barn and found an old military uniform. Wearing the uniform, he was able to pass for a North Korean soldier. He survived by scrounging and stealing food. Eventually, he reached the northern border with China and bribed destitute North Korean border guards with food and cigarettes. After spending some time working as a laborer in different parts of China, Shin was accidentally found by a journalist in a restaurant, who brought him to the South Korean embassy for asylum. Living in the US today, Shin does work as a human rights advocate.
