Summary
Account of husband and wife Isaq Peyzul and Zohre Talip, relayed by their daughter, Zulhumar (Humar) Isaac, who now lives in the US and attended Mandarin-medium schooling by choice as a child in Hami, Xinjiang. This piece does not romanticize Uyghur life, and extensively speaks of Humar's frustrations with Uyghur culture, including misogyny and prejudice against the Han. "[Zohre] told Humar they would both have to be careful; they could not express sadness, confusion or anger [about ethnic riots] in front of her party colleagues. If they did, she would be categorized as having minzu qingxu, an emotional attachment to your ethnic group, a mark of political unreliability for a non-Han minority." Zohre was detained in fall 2018 was Humar was in Sweden, where her Han husband was studying at the University of Uppsala. Isaq was taken shortly thereafter.
