Yodok prison camp in North Korea

A couple of months ago, as part of our focus in 2008 on the country of North Korea, The Voice of the Martyrs started to make available Kang Chol-hwan's memoir, 'The Aquariums of Pyongyang'. In it, the author shares what life in the Yodok prison camp was like, where he and his family were imprisoned fro six years.  It is a disturbing account but worth reading.

Last week, I came across some video footage of the Yodok prison camp from the Japanese Fuji TV broadcasting network on YouTube that you may find interesting.
