Ha Jin's Book: War Trash
April 3, 2005 Sunday 2PM CT
When he was a soldier in the Chinese Army, Ha Jin and his fellow soldiers were afraid of captivity more than death because POWs were treated like trash. After two, on Here on Earth, Jean Feraca and the P-E-N Faulkner award-winning author talk about the story of Chinese POWs in an American prison during the Korean War.
