Still a young girl, Jinhye Jo defected from North Korea in 2008, after her two siblings and grandmother died of hunger in the late 1990s. Her father was tortured and killed and her mother was almost beaten to death by government officials. Now a young woman living in America, Jinhye describes the horror that was life in North Korea.
