Introduction to the Laogai: China’s Forced labor Prisons

date Saturday, 18 June 2011 time 11 a.m.

Harry Wu


After hearing a personal testimony of Harry Wu, a former Chinese political prisoner, students will get a guided tour through the Laogai Musuem. This is an opportunity to learn about the Laogai – China’s system of forced labor prisons. Not only will you gain an understanding of the history of labor camps in China, but we plan to wrap up the course with an open-ended discussion about Chinese human rights issues today. We will break to enjoy a complimentary family style Chinese meal.


Laogai Museum, 1734 20th Street NW
