A Prisoner in North Korea

Larry Zellers

Book published by The University Press of Kentucky

A newly married Methodist minister, Larry Zellers was serving as a missionary and teacher in a small South Korean town near the 38th parallel when he was captured by the North Koreans on June 25, 1950. Until his release in 1953, Zellers endured brutal conditions and inhumane treatment. Through his story, Zellers shows that, despite the opinion that POWs live only for themselves, many in the camps worked to help others and conducted themselves with honor.

Larry Zellers became a U.S. Air Force Chaplain after his release.


“Provides a fascinating view into the minds of both captors and prisoners.”

Bowling Green Daily News

“This harrowing but inspiring account is especially absorbing.”

Publishers Weekly

“Zeller’s account is distinguished both by its immediacy and its detachment.”

Register of the Kentucky Historical Society

“Zellers writes with authority on such issues as strategies for survival in a POW environment and the subsequent need for a strong will to live.... A compelling book.”


“A chilling account of the suffering he and a group of fellow civilians endured during three years as prisoners of Communist North Korea.”

Retired Officer Magazine

“His compelling portrayal of his comrades and their experiences is a unique tale of civilians trapped in war. Recommended. ”
