Gulbahar Haitiwaji: To Make Us Slowly Disappear

This is one Uyghur woman’s astonishing story of survival. More than a million Uyghur Muslims are incarcerated in Chinese detention units: China describes them as re-education camps while human rights organisations accuse China of genocide. Gulbahar Haitiwaji is one of the few who have been able to give an insider’s view. Today she recalls her experiences and introduces her book How I Survived a Chinese ‘Re-education’ Camp, alongside her daughter Gulhumar Haitiwaji and chair Mairi Oliver.
