North Korea is a totalitarian state where tens of thousands of people are enslaved and brutalised. Jihyun Park escaped twice from North Korea and now has refugee status in the UK where she works for the European Alliance for Human Rights in North Korea as North Korean Outreach and Project Officer. Her story is of fleeing near-starvation in North Korea to China, only to be torn away from her son and forced back to the country she fled and imprisonment until her second successful escape.
