    North Korea is isolated and hungry, bankrupt and belligerent. It is also armed with nuclear weapons. Between 150,000 and 200,000 people are being held in its political prison camps, which have existed twice as long as Stalin’s Soviet gulags and twelve times as long as the Nazi concentration camps. Very few born and raised in these camps have escaped - but Shin Dong-hyuk did.

    In 1946, Master Sergeant Donald Nichols was repairing jeeps on the sleepy island of Guam when he caught the eye of recruiters from the army's Counter Intelligence Corps. After just three months' training, he was sent to Korea, then a backwater beneath the radar of MacArthur's Pacific Command. Though he lacked the pedigree of most US spies - Nichols was a seventh-grade dropout - he quickly metamorphosed from army mechanic to black ops phenomenon.

    Das diktatorisch regierte Nordkorea ist fast völlig isoliert, aggressiv und bettelarm, und es hält rund 150.000 seiner Bürger in Lagern gefangen, die vergleichbar sind mit NS-Konzentrationslagern oder dem Gulag. Da die Lager seit Jahrzehnten existieren, gibt es inzwischen Tausende, die dort aufgewachsen sind. Einer von ihnen ist Shin Dong-hyuk. Blaine Harden erzählt die Geschichte des 1982 im sogenannten Lager 14 geborenen Shin, der bis zu seiner Flucht nie etwas anderes kennengelernt hatte als die grausame und primitive Lagerwelt. Menschlichkeit, Vertrauen, Wärme, Zuneigung und jegliche Errungenschaften der Zivilisation waren ihm unbekannt, Hunger, Misstrauen und brutale Züchtigungen hingegen Alltag.

    I 1950 kastede den unge nordkoreanske leder Kim Il-Sung sit land ud i krig mod Sydkorea. Han forventede et hurtigt felttog og en genforening af landet under kommunistisk styre, men Koreakrigen blev i stedet en blodig og resultatløs styrkeprøve mellem USA og Sovjetunionen med millioner af døde til følge. Mens Kim Il-Sung ledte landet i krig, tog den unge nordkoreaner No Kum Sok en dristig beslutning: Han ville spille glødende kommunistisk idealist, mens han i hemmelighed planlagde sin flugt ud af landet.
