Harry was just a teenager when he fled from North Korea with his mom
Like many North Korean refugees, their journey to freedom was not without great risk and sacrifice. Soon after reaching South Korea, Harry learned that his oldest sister had been tortured by North Korean authorities for their escape, leaving her devastated by mental illness.
Their story echoes that of many other North Koreans, who live with both the weight of their past and their hope for the future. With nothing left to lose, Harry is now a vocal advocate for the North Korean people. He holds on to the hope that he will someday be reunited with his older sister in a free North Korea.
