    One would have to be quite ignorant to not have heard about North Korea, let alone not knowing any facts about it (even if it's from the films 'Team America: World Police' or 'The Interview').

    Yes I understand this, however the poll is on the North Korean death camp Hoeryong. I wanted to see how many people had heard of it- not how many people had heard of North Korea.

    Sorry for misreading the name of the poll. As a South Korean, I have still heard of the names of the North Korean concentration camps including Hoeryong. Their names ought to be as well known to the public as the names Auschwitz, Treblinka, Bergen-Belsen, Dachau, Ravensbruck, Drancy etc.

    I am writing an article for school about this exact view point! I'm so glad someone agrees

    You may want to read the UN human rights report on North Korea. It's hundreds of pages long but it's an interesting read.
