李炫秀 (Hyeonseo Lee之音譯) 是一個在北韓長大的小孩,她曾經以為他住在「全世界最棒」的國家,直到 90 年代的一場大饑荒。從北韓逃亡那年,她年僅 14 歲。此後,她成了在中國的難民,開始過著躲躲藏藏的生活。這是一段令人捶胸頓足,關於生存與希望的個人故事;也是一段無關乎國境距離,持續生活在危險中的回憶。

As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee thoght her country was the "best on the planet." It wasn't until the famine of the 90s that she began to wonder. She escaped the country at 17-years-old to begin a life in hiding as a refugee in China. Hers is a harrowing, personal tale of survival and hope — and a powerful reminder of those who face constant danger, even when the border is far behind. Full bio
