Fourth Death of Hansenin
Ka-eul Yoo

Children standing in line apart from their parents.

Hansenin*, or Hansen’s disease (leprosy) patients in South Korea, have historically described themselves as experiencing three deaths. The first death corresponds to their diagnosis, the second to their mandatory autopsy, and the third to their cremation and burial in a designated charnel house on Sorok Island.  Learn more about the fourth death, and Ka-eul's research, here.
