Sagar – My Ten Lives

Illustration
  • 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 26 April 2005, To the Castle and Back

„When such events happen, there is inevitably a call for the further homogenization of society,; we get rid of the Jews, then Germans, the bourgeoisie, then dissidents, then Slovaks – and who will be next in line? The Roma? Homosexuals? All foreigners? And who will be left? Pure-blooded little Czechs in their own little garden. It’s not just that such a position or, ultimately, such a policy is immoral, it’s also suicidal.“
