The Heritage Foundation
The North Korean leadership’s brutality is well-known, but none know it better than those who have lived there. Join us for a conversation with refugees who escaped North Korea—one who was imprisoned in a political prison camp from age 9 to 19 and another, an ethnically Korean-Japanese woman who was lured from Japan to North Korea under false pretenses. Both refugees have turned their hardships into opportunities to provide hope for others by advocating for human rights in North Korea. Listen to renowned experts discuss how individuals, civil society, and governments can better advance human rights and freedom in North Korea.
