Sagar – My Ten Lives

  • Where: Václav Havel Library, Ostrovní 13, Prague 110 00
  • When: September 13, 2017, 19:00 – 21:00

The story of the refugee Sagar, who as a child was forced to leave her native Kabul and spent several years on the move and in refugee camps before her family settled in Prague, where they have lived for 20 years. Her parents opened a restaurant serving traditional Afghan specialities; while Sagar and her siblings help them out, their main focus is on sharing their experience as refugees with those who have never been through that trauma.

Lenka Kuhar Daňhelová will host the discussion with Sagar Ragin.

Diary entry for 10 July 2005, To the Castle and Back

„I’ve run away. I’ve run away to Hrádeček. I’m here alone and I feel uneasy. Everything reminds me of the decades I’ve been through in this place. I like it here. It’s my refuge, my existential home, but again and again I realize there’s no going back, and that by now I’m not the same person I was when I wrote my plays, prepared my experimental meals, threw light-hearted parties, and organised secret dissident meetings. I’m older, sicker, wearier.“
