Remembering Otto:
A Conversation with Cindy Warmbier

Friday, June 19, 2020
11:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Dear Friend of HRNK,
 
We wish to invite you to join us for a Zoom conversation with Mrs. Cindy Warmbier, mother of Otto Warmbier. HRNK Executive Director Greg Scarlatoiu will moderate a virtual meeting with Mrs. Warmbier, to be held from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. on Friday, June 19th, the day we commemorate three years since the tragic passing of Otto at the hands of the Kim regime.
 
Otto Warmbier, a bright, handsome, and talented 22-year-old Ohio native and University of Virginia student, passed away on June 19th, 2017, from injuries suffered while detained on fabricated charges in North Korea.
 
The Kim regime imprisoned and killed Otto. Ever since their beloved son was taken away from them, Cindy and Fred Warmbier have relentlessly pursued truth and justice for him and for the millions of unknown North Koreans who have been similarly subjected to the brutality of the Kim regime.
 
As the United States and the world are struggling to cope with unprecedented challenges, we hope you can join Mrs. Warmbier and HRNK in this celebration of Otto’s life and legacy.
 
Please confirm your participation by emailing your RSVP directly to Rosa Park, HRNK's Director of Programs: [email protected]. Once we receive your RSVP, we will send you Zoom credentials.
 
Sincerely yours,
 
The HRNK Team

Through satellite imagery analysis and witness testimony, HRNK has identified a previously unknown potential kyo-hwa-so long-term prison-labor facility at Sŏnhwa-dong (선화동) P’ihyŏn-gun, P’yŏngan-bukto, North Korea. While this facility appears to be operational and well maintained, further imagery analysis and witness testimony collection will be necessary in order to irrefutably confirm that Sŏnhwa-dong is a kyo-hwa-so.

Human Rights in the Democratic Republic of Korea: The Role of the United Nations" is HRNK's 50th report in our 20-year history. This is even more meaningful as David Hawk's "Hidden Gulag" (2003) was the first report published by HRNK. In his latest report, Hawk details efforts by many UN member states and by the UN’s committees, projects and procedures to promote and protect human rights in the DPRK.  The report highlights North Korea’s shifts in its approach

This project began with expert testimony Collins submitted as part of a joint investigation and documentation project scrutinizing human rights violations committed at North Korea’s short-
