THANKS TO LINDA HASUNUMA FOR GREAT DISCUSSION: The Koreas

At the end of World War II, Korea was divided in two. The northern half of the Korean peninsula was occupied by the Soviet Union, the southern by the United States. Today, North and South Korea couldn’t be further apart. The North is underdeveloped, impoverished and ruled by a corrupt, authoritarian government, while the South advanced rapidly to become one of the most developed countries in the world. With such a wide gap, some are asking if unification is possible, even desirable, anymore?

1 p.m. Monday, March 28
Fredricksen Library
100 N 19th St., Camp Hill

The Great Decisions discussions will be televised on WHBG Channel 20, thanks to a grant from HARSCO!
