George Ogle (1929-2020)

R.I.P. Rev. George Ogle, an American missionary and advocate for human rights in South Korea, who was deported from South Korea by the Park Chung Hee dictatorship in 1974 because he prayed for the political prisoners who were executed on trumped-up charges (I believe this photo was taken when he was being taken to the airport during his deportation). His wife, Dorothy Ogle, is a strong advocate for peace in the Korean Peninsula.
