A combination photo shows (L) Kim Chang-nam, 71, who was one of the participants in the latest inter-Korean reunion for families separated by the 1950-53 Korean War, posing at his house in Seoul March 11, 2014 and (R) holding a polaroid picture taken during the reunion with his older sister living in the North. Kim said that during the Korean War, his older sister and older brother went to Pyongyang to find their uncle. He said that he thought his sister was dead, but he was able to see her again thanks to the family reunions. "I never understood what it meant to be a war-torn family member until I heard my sister was alive [and] looking for me. I just didn't know where to start. I feel like I didn't get to even ask how she was doing. I thought my older sister was dead, so I burned pictures and everything else that reminded me of her. If I had known she was alive, I would've given her some baby pictures of us together,? Kim said. The latest family reunion for those separated in North and South Korea was held on February 20-25 at the Mount Kumgang resort just north of the border and a total of 813 family members met in tears and joy. On March 17, a report on North Korea will be presented to the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva. Pictures taken March 11, 2014. REUTERS/Kim Hong-Ji (SOUTH KOREA - Tags: SOCIETY CONFLICT)
