If you type “youtube echo of truth” into your internet browser, you will find several short films from North Korea. For example: “I Missed You, My School.” (Un A’s Pyongyang Tour Series). This is one easy way of taking a trip to North Korea!
Un A is the first name of a young woman that is making available videos showing everyday life in North Korea. This is what the description of her channel promises. The videos are professionally produced, which leads to believe that a PR department is behind it.
Nonetheless: What you see is real. It is a small window that does not want to show everything. The school that we are shown is real – even if not every school in the country is as well-equipped as this one and not every child speaks English as well as we see in this video.
