Sound bite depictions of North Korea often make it sound as if it’s virtually impossible to know or explain. While it is true that we don’t know what goes on day-to-day in the inner circles of its government, a great deal about life inside the country has come to light during the last 15 years. Please invite your friends and help us spread the word about this important exhibition.
• North Korea’s education system
• The state of the North’s economy
• Political prison camps
• Forced repatriation
A Note about English: There will be English translations for most of the exhibition.
Volunteer: If you are knowledgeable about North Korea and its human rights situation and would like to help answer visitors’ questions in English or Japanese, please let us know if you can volunteer.
