The Koreans of Kazakhstan

14 Dec The Koreans of Kazakhstan

Sung-ok Tigay, 92, worked in the field growing rice until her hands got fractured. She was deported from Vladivostok
at the age of 13 and lost her parents soon after. Like many of the deported Koreans, she was later hosted by a Kazakh family. Kazakhs and Koreans have developed a close relationship that is still appreciated today.
