  • 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.
