Diamond Mountain in North Korea recently hosted a family reunion like no other. After more than 60 years separated by war, hundreds of people in North Korea reunited with their South Korean relatives for the first time.
It was simply beautiful.
Millions of families were separated during the Korean War and were never reunited. North Koreans are banned from writing letters, emails, having a phone call or even visiting their relatives in South Korea.
The October 2015 reunion featured long lost siblings, children and spouses. Some of the visitors had to bring old photographs so that they would recognize their relatives.
Lee Soon-kyu, an 85-year-old from South Korea, was finally reunited with her husband, 83-year-old Oh In-se from North Korea.
They last held hands over 60 years ago.
"I am not sure if I will even be able to recognize her. I don't even remember how she looked as a baby," Choi told CBS News.
390 South Koreans and 140 North Koreans reunited at this three-day event.
South Korea relies on a computerized lottery system to pick participants to attend the reunions and North Korea reportedly chooses people based on loyalty to the government. Most of the applicants are elderly and want to reunite with their relatives before they die.
Of the 130,410 South Koreans who applied for a reunion, a few thousand have participated in them.
