High School for North Korean Defectors: Field Trip to DMZ

I got an e-mail a little while ago about this video, and forgot about it until rechecking the Hub Of Sparkle e-mail account.

This nine-minute film gives a brief sketch of the young people who have escaped from North Korea, some of whom left their parents behind.

The more you know about North Korea, and the more you know about how North Koreans live in South Korea, the more tragic this story is... for one, the faces of all the students in the video except two, are blurred out, for fear that somebody will recognize their faces and their relatives still in North Korea will be punished.

Give it a watch.
