For three years, she endured hundreds of hours of interrogation, torture, hunger, police violence, cold, and rats. Her name is Gulbahar Haitiwaji and she is the first Uyghur woman survivor of Chinese re-education camps to give a connected and detailed account of what happens there.

'Intimate, highly sensory' - Daily Telegraph 'Indispensable' - Sunday Times 'Harrowing' - New Statesman THE FIRST MEMOIR ABOUT THE 'RE-EDUCATION' CAMPS BY A UYGHUR WOMAN For three years, Gulbahar Haitiwaji disappeared into a secret network of jails. Now, she is the first female Uyghur survivor to give a connected and revealing account of life inside China's brainwashing 're-education' camps. Her account reads like a modern version of 1984. It tells the story of a woman confronted by an all-powerful state bent on crushing her spirit - and her struggle for freedom and dignity. This rare portrait of China's gulag is visceral and internationally important. 'An intimate, highly sensory self-portrait... of an educated woman passing through a system that appears at turns cruel, paranoid, capricious and devastatingly effective.' - Daily Telegraph 'Gulbahar's memoir is an indispensable account, which makes vivid the stench of fearful sweat in the cells, the newly built prison's permanent reek of white paint. It closely corresponds with other witness statements... Most impressive is her psychological honesty.' - Sunday Times
