Since the 1953 armistice agreement between North and South Korea, millions of families were divided based on an arbitrary border. From mothers and sons to cousins and grandparents, these families have endured decades of isolation and have been cut off from
communication and contact. It’s estimated that over 100,000 Korean-Americans are separated from their family members in North Korea. Sadly, many of these Americans are over the age of 80 and are dying before having the opportunity to reunite with their families.
