The prisoners in North were treated in such a way that anyone perhaps can't even imagine. Starvation has become a common problem inside the camp where the inmates are provided with gruel made of cornmeal and cabbage. Shin Dong-hyuk, who was able to escape from the camp after 23 years, told

We were always hungry, and the guards always told us, ‘Through hunger, you will repent,'

Shin said,

They often eat rats and insects just to stay alive.

Prisoners used to develop hunched backs from bending over in the fields due to lack of calcium and protein in their diet. Some lose toes and fingers to frostbite.

6. Torturing Prisoners Just For Fun

Captives are treated as subhuman inside the camp where guards terrorize and torture their captives just for funs, according to the escapees. Moreover, the prisoners are punished brutally for their simple mistakes. 

One of the inmate's fingertip was chopped off after he accidentally broke a machine while working in a factory. Moreover, they torture more inhumanely if someone tries to escape from the camp. While Shin was only 13, he was sent to an underground torture center after his mother, and older brother allegedly tried to escape. Shin told he was hung on his ankles and was tortured with fires.

5. Women's Prohibited From Pregnancy

He was treated as a machine inside the prison. He was given a handful of cornmeal and 50-90 soya beans at breakfast. Then he had to work until noon when he was given another small meal before he again heads to work. Due to lack of food, he was only thinking of food like other prisoners.

2. Guards Killed Inmates For Rewards

Guards in prison were trained so that no one could escape the prison. They were strictly told to kill the inmates if they try to escape and if any guard manages to kill an escapee, he was rewarded. 

Many guards killed innocent people so that the guards would be allowed to go to the college and to get many beneficial rewards. A guard Ahn Myong Chol, who worked as a prison guard for over a decade claimed he witnessed one of his colleagues order a prisoner to climb the barbed wire fence and he shot the prisoner and left for a college. It was only one of the various incidents happened in prison.

Later she was arrested and deported to Korea where she was sent to a labor camp. Park and other inmates were forced to clear hills of trees so that crops could be planted.
