Details About the talk

Ako malé dieťa si Hyaonseo Leeová myslela, že Severná Kórea je tou „najlepšou krajinou na svete". Až pokým krajinu nezasiahol v polovici 90. rokov hlad. Keď mala 14 rokov, utiekla, aby sa ako utečenkyňa skrývala v Číne. Jej srdcervúci príbeh je príbehom o prežití a nádeji a silným odkazom pre tých, ktorí čelia neustálemu nebezpečenstvu, aj keď sú už ďaleko za hranicami Severnej Kórey.

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.
