Anthony Del Col: I Escaped a Chinese Internment Camp

WINNER OF THE 2022 PULITZER PRIZE FOR ILLUSTRATED REPORTING!

A 2024 JUNIOR LIBRARY GUILD SELECTION!

 

This graphic novella, from New Friday an imprint of Lev Gleason®, recounts the true story of Zumrat Dawut, as originally published in the independent online news organization, Business Insider, through interviews conducted by Anthony Del Col and testimony given to the United Nations Human Rights Council.

 

Zumrat Dawut is a mother of three in the Xinjiang autonomous region in China, who was arrested and sent to a detention facility for simply being a Muslim. There, she endured brutal living conditions, torture, interrogations, anti-Muslim propaganda, and sterilization. But that was just the beginning of Zumrat's troubles, who with her husband would soon hatch a plan to escape to America.

 

This story, featuring art by Golden Kit Award-Winner Fahmida Azim (Samira Surfs), and adapted by best-selling writer Anthony Del Col (Kill Shakespeare), was originally published online by Business Insider. This print edition, published by New Friday an imprint of Lev Gleason®, includes a foreword by Nicholas Carlson, Global Editor-in-Chief of Business Insider, an interview with the creative team, a follow-up interview with Zumrat Duwat, a teaching/discussion guide, and process art.

 

I Escaped a Chinese Internment Camp is a harrowing, evocative, and important story that will enthrall and enlighten readers worldwide.

"Sometimes you read a true story and you realize that your issues pale in comparison. Not to trivialize problems; everything is relative. But when you come upon a comic like I Escaped a Chinese Internment Camp on Insider, a lot gets put into perspective." - The Beat
