Details About the talk

Kot otrok odraščajoč v Severni Koreji, je Hyeonseo Lee mislila, da je njena država "najboljša na svetu." S prihodom lakote v 90-ih se je začela spraševati. Pri 14-ih je pobegnila iz države na Kitajsko, kjer se je skrivala in živela kot begunka. To je njena srhljiva osebna izpoved o preživetju in upanju - in močan opomnik na tiste, ki so izpostavljeni stalni nevarnosti, tudi ko je meja že daleč za njimi.

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.
