In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom

In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom by Yeonmi Park is a stunning memoir of a young woman who escaped from the oppressive regime of North Korea. Park recounts her childhood of hunger, fear, and indoctrination, and her perilous journey to freedom through China, Mongolia, and South Korea. Along the way, she faced unimaginable horrors, such as being sold into sex slavery, losing her father to cancer, and being separated from her sister for years. The book is a testament to Park’s courage, resilience, and hope, as well as a call to action for the world to pay attention to the human rights violations in North Korea.
