Subjects / Categories: 
The Laogai Museum documents and exposes the Laogai - China's vast and brutal system of forced labor prison camps. It is the first museum in the U.S. to directly address human rights in China. The museum contains over 100 books, documents, and photos about the Laogai, including numerous classified Communist Party documents. The museum highlights the injustice of criminal prosecution in China. Victim profiles and biographical interviews with survivors shed light on the devastating impact the Laogai has had on the Chinese people. Dozens of sample forced labor products are evidence that the system of repression continues to exist today, to the profit of the Chinese government.
