Description

In 1916, Muslims in Central Asia rose up against Russian imperial rule. The revolt was brutally supressed. Tens of thousands of Central Asians were killed, and hundreds of thousands fled to China. 

This episode of the BBC World Service's Witness programme, produced and presented by Dina Newman, includes extracts from an interview with me.
