The Parade by Fidyk, Andrzej
At the end of World War 2, the northern part of the Korean peninsula was occupied by the Soviet Union, while the southern half was occupied by the United States. In 1948, two separate governments were formed, and the two Koreas have been at war since 1950. Since the establishment, North Korea has been a single party state. Kim Il Sung became president from its establishment until his death in 1994. The personality cult surrounding him is the most widespread among the citizens and he is referred to as the Eternal President.
