    Amnesty International details China’s systematic persecution of the Uyghur minority in the Xinjiang region. It shows how, since 2017, Beijing has carried out a campaign of repression against the predominantly Muslim minority, incarcerating Millions in so-called “re-education” camps. But even those spared imprisonment are subject to harsh surveillance measures. DW learned more about the daily realities facing Uyghurs, from a former school teacher, who now lives in freedom in the Netherlands.

In Europe, it consists of 12 provinces that border Germany to the east, Belgium to the south, and the North Sea to the northwest, with maritime borders in the North Sea with those countries and the United Kingdom. In the Caribbean, it consists of three special municipalities: the islands of Bonaire, Sint Eustatius and Saba. The country’s official language is Dutch, with West Frisian as a secondary official language in the province of Friesland, and English and Papiamentu as secondary official languages in the Caribbean Netherlands.
