North Koreans candidate for Red Cross Award

…Every year thousands of women suffering from starvation and suppression flee from North Korea to China. Some become victims of violence or are forced into marriage, while others continue towards South Korea. Christian priests help the women along the way but “God’s stamp” also endangers their lives. And where does their journey end? We have followed three women in search of freedom – in Shenyang, Bangkok and Seoul.

Amnesty Journal has submitted “The Flight from North Korea” for the German Red Cross Media Award 2010. The jury’s decision will be made in April.

The women’s story has been published in Denmark, Germany, Schwitzerland and Sweden.
