It’s no new news that North Korea is shrouded in secrecy and that its leader Kim is ruthless. What is the worst part of the story is that the world watches as an authoritarian regime continue to treat its citizens as prisoners. As worse as it is when the world looks on as the Uighurs are tortured in China and the minorities are killed in India.
The theme of the Holocaust is: never forget. Yes, we honour the sufferings of those tortured in and by Nazi Germany. But never forget also means that we keep in mind the holocaust in order that such crimes against humans and humanity are never perpetuated. So the narcissist leader of North Korea, and of China aren’t unlike Hitler. And yet we choose to look the other way.
