“Maybe deep, deep inside me I knew something was wrong. But we North Koreans can be experts at lying, even to ourselves. The frozen babies that starving mothers abandoned in the alleys did not fit into my worldview, so I couldn`t process what I saw. It was normal to see bodies in the trash heaps, bodies floating in the river, normal to just walk by and do nothing when a stranger cried for help. There were so many desperate people on the streets crying for help that you had to shut off your heart or the pain would be too much. After a while you can´t care anymore. And that is what hell is like.”
