Quick overview A powerful and urgent memoir by Uyghur activist Gulchehra Hoja - a remarkable woman who went from being a beloved star on Chinese children's TV to a journalist whose reporting on the oppression of her people led to her entire extended family being imprisoned.
€16.92

A Stone is Most Precious Where it Belongs: A Memoir of Uyghur Loss, Exile and Hope is the first major book to describe the fate of the Uyghur people. In it, Gulchehra describes her journey towards the truth about Uyghur life under Chinese rule in East Turkistan - from her early life, to her success as a television star; and her revelation of the reality about Communist rule; her flight to the US; and then, the fight of her life: to expose Beijing's terrible crimes against her people.

Gulchehra Hoja is an extraordinary person, a woman who was willing to give up everything for her people. Her memoir takes us far beyond what the Chinese state wants the world to see, to reveal the beauty of East Turkistan and the ancient culture of its people.
