Reeducation Camp

"Reeducation Camp" is the official name given to prison camps operated by the Vietnamese government following the Vietnam War. Both a means of revenge and a sophisticated repression and indoctrination system, the camps were used by the government to "reeducate"—through hard labor—several hundred thousand former military officers and government workers from South Vietnam.
