Let the World Hear: Stories from the Victims of the Belarusian Dictatorship

In this anthology The Stockholm Free World Forum, with the financial support of KAS, have gathered eleven stories of the people who spoke up against the Belarusian regime.

On 9 August 2020, the Belarusian dictator Aliaksandr Lukashenka, who has ruled the country for 26 years, falsely claimed the victory in the national election.

The people of Belarus reacted to the injustice by holding peaceful demonstrations and meetings. The regime responded in the most gruesome way. Thousands upon thousands were detained. In the detention centres and jails, people were beaten, tortured, raped, humiliated, as well denied food and water, medical attention, and the opportunity to speak to a
lawyer.

Some were arrested for attending a demonstration. Some for wearing something white – the colour of
the opposition. And some had simply been in the wrong place at the wrong time.

In this anthology The Stockholm Free World Forum has gathered eleven stories of the people who spoke up, with the financial support of the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung.

The world must know what happened.
