Nury Turkel was born in a re-education camp in East Turkistan  —  China’s Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region — during the Cultural Revolution. Upon arriving in the United States in 1995, he was granted asylum and has relentlessly advocated for the rights of the Uyghur people. In his newest memoir, No Escape: The True Story of China’s Genocide of the Uyghurs, he details the Chinese government’s long history of persecuting Uyghurs, dives into his personal experiences, and urges the international community to hold China accountable. In conversation with HRF Chairman Garry Kasparov, Turkel lays out the truth about the Chinese government’s genocidal actions in the Uyghur Region
