Aprašymas

A devastating account of China’s ethnic cleansing of the Uyghurs, by a leading activist and Time 100 nominee.

In recent years, the Chinese Communist Party has rounded up as many as three million Uyghurs, placing them in what it calls ‘re-education camps’ – facilities most of the world identifies as concentration camps. Yet this enslavement of the Uyghur people is but the latest in a string of moves taken by the party to supress and eradicate them. In Xinjiang, ethnic and religious oppression, extrajudicial arrests, the widespread sterilisation of women and enforced labour on a massive scale have become commonplace. Whilst the tactics employed are reminiscent of those used during the cultural revolution, the results are far more insidious because of the technology used, much of it stolen from Silicon Valley.

In this book, Nury Turkel uses his powerful personal story – as well as the testimonies of countless others – to help explain the unprecedented urgency and scope of the Uyghur crisis. Born in a re-education camp, Turkel was lucky enough to survive and eventually make his way to the United States where, as a human rights attorney and leading Uyghur activist who serves on the US Commission on International Religious Freedom, he has worked as a tireless and renowned advocate for the plight of his people.

With echoes of Anne Frank and Hannah Arendt, No Escape is a searing and unforgettable exposé of the Chinese government’s systematic cleansing of the Uyghur people, which is fast becoming one of the greatest human rights crises of the modern era.
