Amnesty International

Muhammad Fazal's insight:

Amnesty International although does not physically go into North Korea and stop terror and rescue people. After all this reading, ive found out that, not even the super powers like the United States, Great Britain, Russia, and China none of them dare do something about it. Rather they just tell North Korea to "please Stop" and North Korea just says sorry and keeps moving along. So organizations like Amnesty International are working on notifying the public on the horrors that take place every day in North Korea, before reading this book, i had no idea about any of it. Thats the Shin is now working with Amnesty International to raise awareness and to collectively do something about it because, even though we cant not physically do anything about it, we all have a voice and we can use it be used in positive way. Theres thousands of kids and women and children like Shin out there who go through suffering everyday while we go by day by day not even knowing about it

Article 1

Muhammad Fazal's insight:

This article gives insight on many scopes of mine. The first of which is, the way the guards control the lives of the inmates. From when they are born they work them and send then to school where they are thought not math and science like normal schools, but they are thought how to snitch and only care about themselves. Another really eye opening thing is why people are brought to these camps. From the weirdest and smallest reason they are tortured and punished there whole lives. Harden remarks "His first memory is an execution" so for normal people we never to rarely ever see anything like that ever in our entire lives let alone that being our first memory. Lastly, its sad how these people are making the countries economy run but they aren't getting paid a single dime. They are getting complete opposite they are slaves and we all know about them, heck we know the exact location, but no ones doing anything because we fear Nuclear War.

Muhammad Fazal's insight:

Its good to actually see Shin in person. Look into his eyes and see his pain. Shin doesn't seem normal. You see the pain he still carries with him today. The video connects the book, obviously its Shin himself and we see illustrations of the suffering he went through when they thought he had something to do the escape plan of his mother and brother. We see his middle finger that was cut off but Shin says something really weird. he says i deserved it. He also when talks about his mom and brother he says he deserved it also. Shin tells us “the food made me escape, even if it was going to cost me my life, the only thing that interested me as the food” its like Shin was animal all he cared about was his stomach. He didn't escape because it was hell and the injustice being done to them the withdrawal of basic human rights, not that he watched his own mother get hung and brother get shot. at the end all that matter to him was food so you see his mind set that of a animal. as long as his stomach is full he's fine. Thats how the guards and government wants so they never even think of questioning them and there evil ways.

Article 2

Muhammad Fazal's insight:


The scopes in this article is "the origins" of the Camps and the country in general. What happen after the Stain left that made this country how it is today. when did this country go from being about the people to just worrying about the elite and Nuclear Weapons. The whole world sees the camps and we know that people are being treated like animals in them yet no ones is doing anything. Why is that we read about Hitler and Nazi camps that existed 50 years ago and we get disturbed yet while I'm typing this right now theres thousands of people, starving, selling there own family out for food. What is there crime? that there grandfather was believed to be against the government or said something against the supreme leader so his children and grandchildren treated like animals . Like the co author Blaine Harden says "High School students in America debate why President Roosevelt didn't bomb the rail lines to Hitler's camps. Their children may ask, a generation from now, why the West stared at far clearer satellite images of Kim Jong Il's camps, and did nothing" why isn't the Us and other countries stepping in and saying anything? where is the UN? or do they fear the government like people in the camp who for how ever they live, the only thing they know of is torture and work and snitching for food.

North Korea Map

Muhammad Fazal's insight:

North Korea is on the eastern tip on the world. The country is run a by a totalitarian leader Kim Jong Eun. The country is divided into 3 classes. The upper "elite" class, that lives well. the middle and tensioned class that get by but our tired of the government and its ways. The last and lower or "oppressed' class some barley get by others are considered impure and of dirty blood, are sent to concentration camps were they are worked to death. So if you you are taking vaction this winter break,  I would stay away from North Korea, the country is starving and the leaders dont like us. also there have been reports of kidnapping americans so if your into that North Korea is your place.

Escape from Camp 14

Escape from Camp 14 | North Korea | Scoop.it
A New York Times bestseller, the shocking story of one of the few people born in a North Korean political prison to have escaped and surv...
Muhammad Fazal's insight:

Escape From Camp 14 by Blaine Harden is a very intriguing and capturing. The book is set in North Korea in 2005. The main character in the book Shin Dong-hyuk is raised up in a prison camp which have existed twice as long as Stalin’s gulags and twelve as long as the Nazi concentration camps. These camps are visible but from satellite but the North Korean government deny its existence. People who are born in the camp stay there till the day they die. In the camp children are brainwashed and told that they have dirty blood and that they have to be cleansed. Also in the camp they are treated as animals. They barley get food and mostly they starve. But the most intriguing and disturbing part of the book is that they are all completion to one another. Even to there families. Children are told and trained to snitch on their families and neighbors. In the book Shin refers to his own mom as competition and later in gives mom up so he doesn’t get killed. In the book Shin lives only revolves around food, he gives up his own mother and father for a promise of better food and less work. But once he turns them over, they think Shin tried to escape to so they start torturing him and even cutting of the tip of his middle finger. Than later he meets Park and together they escape but Shin trips on purpose so park goes first and gets electrocuted and he leaves him behind. he finds his way our his to China. Shin later escapes from camp 14 and makes his way to the US where he finds safety from all the violence and starvation back home.
