A Letter from A Prison Guard in the Newly Built Concentration Camp in Dawanching

Young Uyghur girls were raped at will by guards in concentration camps, and were sent home if became pregnant. These kinds of crimes against humanity are being committed now in East Turkestan by the Chinese government!
“One day, more than 3,000 high school girls, all of them are around the age of 18, were transferred to the Dawanching concentration camp, right after the camp’s expansion.  One of the girls who was standing in the first row, quietly said to me: “Brother, you can do anything to my body, as long as you can rescue me from here”. I couldn’t look into her eyes at that time, and her words echo almost every day in my ears ever since.”
“Most of the time, the officer would rape the selected girl alone. Sometimes, if he is high, he would let subordinates gang rape the girls after him. After they are done, the girl would be returned back to the cell. The girl wouldn’t say anything, but I could see her tears from the camera. In the cells, they are not allowed to cry, not allowed to express their emotions, and not allowed to talk.  Because of those restrictions, they can’t vent their emotions, so their mood can be extremely dreadful.”
The above are the two excerpts from a letter from a prison guard in the newly built concentration camp in Dawanching, near Urumchi. The original letter (in Chinese) was posted online by Erkin Azat on May 12, 2019. The letter has been translated into English by Torchlight Uyghur Group, and posted at Please read the full letter, and help us save the Uyghurs in East Turkestan. Thank you!
