St. John’s Coun. Debbie Hanlon is coming under fire for her use of images of a prisoner of war in a marketing campaign promoting her real estate business.
One of her ads posted to Instagram over the weekend tells the story of Yang Kyoungjong, a Korean prisoner of war who was forced to fight for three different countries during the Second World War.
Kyoungjong was enlisted against his will in 1938 to fight for Japan. While fighting, he was captured by the Soviets, and then again by the Nazis.
