Think concentration camps are a thing of the past?
There are still concentration camps in the world.
It's probably no surprise they're in North Korea, although the government there won't admit it despite satellite photographs proving their existence.
Or despite the story told by Shin Dong-hyuk.
He lived in what was called "Camp 14" for the first 23 years of his life. Shin was able to escape and is now making it his mission to let the world know of the horrors happening in his native country. An author wrote a book about Shin's experiences ("Escape From Camp 14) and both CBS's "60 Minutes" and CNN's "Anderson Cooper 360" ran pieces about his story, all as North Korea celebrates this week's firing of a missile could give this backwards, starving nation the ability to fire nukes across the Pacific.
It's no surprise that a nation willing to spend billions on such an endeavor while it's people starve is capable of such supreme cruelty.
