Details About the talk

Som barn i Nordkorea troede Hyeonseo Lee at hendes hjemland var “det bedste i verden”. Det var først under hungersnøden i 90'erne hun begyndte at stille spørgsmålstegn ved det. Hun flygtede fra landet som 14-årig, for at begynde et liv i det skjulte, som flygtning i Kina. Hendes historie er en personlig fortælling om overlevelse og håb — og en påmindelse om, at der er mennesker i konstant fare, selv langt fra landegrænsen.

About the speaker
Hyeonseo Lee · Activist

As a child growing up in North Korea, Hyeonseo Lee thoght her country was the "best on the planet." It wasn't until the famine of the 90s that she began to wonder. She escaped the country at 17-years-old to begin a life in hiding as a refugee in China. Hers is a harrowing, personal tale of survival and hope — and a powerful reminder of those who face constant danger, even when the border is far behind.
