Details About the talk

Aufgewachsen in Nordkorea, dachte Hyeonseo Lee, ihr Land sei "das beste der Welt". Erst mit der Hungersnot der 90er begann sie zu zweifeln. Sie flüchtete mit 14 Jahren und tauchte unter als Flüchtling in China. Es ist eine erschütternde und persönliche Geschichte vom Überleben und der Hoffnung – eine beeindruckende Erinnerung all jener, die in ständiger Gefahr leben, auch wenn die Grenze schon lange hinter ihnen liegt.

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.
