I’m not usually down with this sort of analogy, but sometimes it’s just unavoidable and entirely appropriate. According to the United Nations, the atrocities committed in North Korea resemble those committed by Nazi Germany. The Guardian of London notes one of the least disgusting of many parallels: “At a press conference to launch the report, Kirby said there were “many parallels” between the evidence he had heard and crimes committed by the Nazis and their allies in the second world war. He noted the evidence of one prison camp inmate who said his duties involved burning the bodies of those who had starved to death and using the remains as fertiliser.”
