Synopsis

Because he prayed in public for eight men who were tortured, forced to make false confessions and were sentenced to death by South Korea’s military dictatorship, in 1974 George Ogle was deported from the country where he had worked as a missionary for 20 years. Two months later when Dorothy and the four Ogle children left Korea, friends and colleagues commissioned them to “Go tell our story.” After the South Korean people ended the military dictatorship in 1987, the story changed from the struggle for democracy and human rights to a story of the Korean movement for peace and reunifi cation of their divided nation. Compelling and comprehensive, Our Lives in Korea and Korea in Our Lives is not only the Ogles’ personal memoirs of living in South Korea from 1954-1974 and later visiting both the North and South, it is an effort to tell the story of the Korean people as the authors experienced it directly, and as it has come to them by closely following the evolving history through almost 60 years. The book highlights the hope and promise of President Kim DaeJung’s “Sunshine Policy” of constructive engagement with North Korea and is written to give readers around the world a vision for ending the Korean War to bring peace, prosperity and reconciliation to all of the Korean people.
