March 28, 2013

The Uyghur Human Rights Project’s oral history project, launched in 2012, is a video series of short, documentary-style recordings of the stories of Uyghurs in exile and the circumstances of their flight from China. The project’s goal is to present viewers with human rights abuses in East Turkestan through the stories of Uyghur people who have had to leave their homeland.

In UHRP’s interview with Kudrat Emin, recorded in March 2013 in Brooklyn, NY, Kudrat tells the story of how and why his family fled East Turkestan and immigrated to the US via Malaysia when he was just a boy of 10 years old.
