Featuring: Victoria Kim, Beijing-based writer and multimedia producer
Moderated by: Jenny Town, Assistant Director, US-Korea Institute at SAIS
The US-Korea Institute at the Johns Hopkins School of Advanced International Studies invites you to attend a presentation of the first English-language multimedia documentary narrative, “Lost and Found in Uzbekistan: The Korean Story,” which uncovers a tragic history behind the USSR’s first massive deportation of an entire nationality— Soviet Koreans— from the Russian Far East to Central Asia. Through the heart-breaking personal accounts of three generations of one family—as well as through her memories about her Korean grandfather who first arrived to Uzbekistan in 1937 as a 7-year old deportee on a cattle train—Victoria Kim unveils a true tale of a unique diaspora forced to come to a foreign land and work extremely hard to make this place their own.
The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session with the author and SAIS alumna Victoria Kim.
Victoria Kim holds an MA from the Johns Hopkins University’s SAIS in Korean Studies and MA from the University of Bolton in International Multimedia Journalism. Originally from Tashkent, Uzbekistan, she is currently based in Beijing, China
