Holocaust Museum Houston will host a critical discussion with the organization Campaign for Uyghurs and hear from a Uyghur survivor.

The Uyghurs, a Turkic Muslim group, have been targeted by the Chinese government for decades. In recent years, the government has escalated a campaign of persecution and mass detention in a sprawling system of forced labor camps and prisons. Between one and three million Uyghurs - of a population of 12 million - are currently in some form of detention, and those who are not still face rapidly tightening control restricting their ability to express their identity.
