Modern Day Genocide: Uncovering the Horrors of Atrocities Against the Uyghur People
Featuring: Rushan Abbas
June 1, 2023, 6:30 pm
St. Louis Kaplan Feldman Holocaust Museum 

Rushan Abbas will provide a vivid account of the atrocities currently being perpetrated against the Uyghur people of East Turkistan (known as the Xinjiang Uyghur Autonomous Region) by the Chinese Communist Party (CCP). She will delve into the CCP’s utilization of modern tactics such as transnational repression, facial recognition and surveillance, modern-day slavery, and torture, as well as the targeted persecution of Uyghur women. Abbas will also shed light on the international response to the Uyghur genocide and discuss what is necessary to address this humanitarian crisis, including advocacy, education, and global action. This lecture is the Museum’s Rabbi Philip and Ruth Lazowski Lecture on Holocaust and Genocide, sponsored by the Feigenbaum-Pepose Family.
