Details About the talk

Da bambina cresciuta in Corea del Nord, Hyeonseo Lee pensava che il suo paese fosse “il migliore al mondo". Almeno fino alla carestia degli anni '90 quando iniziò a farsi domande. Scappò dal suo paese a 14 anni, per iniziare una vita a nascondersi, come rifugiata in Cina. Il suo è un racconto personale e sofferto di sopravvivenza e di speranza e un forte sollecito a ricordare coloro che affrontano un pericolo costante, anche quando il confine è molto lontano.

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.
