The Hanoi Hilton


I have a friend who is traveling in Vietnam who posted about the video above.  It shows Jeremiah Denton who an American imprisoned during the Vietnam War.  He was filmed by the North Vietnamese saying how he was being treated so nicely, but in fact, he was using his eyes to say repeatedly in Morse Code "T-O-R-T-U-R-E."  You can read about the story here.  Considering the recent ISIS beheadings and the forced statements those people have made, above is a different twist on another tough situation that your students will be studying this year.
