For over one hundred years anyone in Hawaii diagnosed with leprosy was exiled to a remote peninsula on the island of Molokai, where, it was assumed, the disease would run its course and claim its victim's life. Over 8,000 people were banished to the colony before Hawaiian law was finally changed in 1969. Now writer John Tayman takes us inside what was once the world's best-known leper colony, in his book The Colony.
