When you feel helpless at the state of the society
The harrowing tale of the Gwangju student uprising and its violent suppression by the military. As our world is in upheaval with crimes against humanity going unaccounted for, this book compels you to ask – what does it mean to be human? It’s a tribute to human spirit in the worst moments of history; it’s also inhuman acts laid bare – the brutal apathy of it. It asks, “why must we fight oppression when nothing changes?”, but it also asks, “why exist at all if not for others?” Unimaginable cruelty and unimaginable kindness – for these are all human acts.
