A modern-day Mauthausen: Camp 22

It has long been purported that a North Korean prison is no more a prison than were Auschwitz, Treblinka or Mauthausen. And like those camps, Pukchang, Yodok and Hoeryong are quickly becoming common lexicon in the discussion of a modern haulocust largely hidden from the west until recently.

Below are a three short clips revealing what we can now extrapolate about these camps from the eyewitness accounts of a former guard and former prisoners at the Hoeryong political prison camp, commonly refered to as “Camp 22”.

The first video captures a prison guard’s account; the second is an account from a younger prisoner who had escaped, the third comes from a former chief guard and the last video is an account from a man born and raised in the camps.
