Korean Families Split For 60 Years, Then Reunited For Three Days

mdig

The Korean war split the country in two: North and South. Families were ripped apart, not to see each other for years to come. Every so often, some families are joined together in planned reunions. These reunions last for only three days, in which selected people are able to meet with family members from the other section of the country.

Many of the families have not seen one another in 60 years. It is a tearful reunion for every person involved, but the goodbye is the most tearful part of the whole experience. In this picture, you see two brothers – one wiping his tears away, sadly, and the other waving in hopes of seeing his other half sooner than later.
