Laogai – the Chinese government's expansive system of forced labor prison camps. Its prisoners, both criminal and political, are forced to produce products for the profit of the communist regime.
They are also subjected to political thought reform. Established in 2008 by the Laogai Research Foundation (LRF), the museum has since relocated to the Dupont Circle area of Washington, DC. Harry Wu, LRF’s Executive Director, founded the Laogai Museum in order to preserve the memory of the Laogai’s victims as well as to raise awareness of the numerous ongoing abuses committed by the Chinese Communist regime against its own people.
The Laogai Museum documents and exposes the Laogai – China’s vast and brutal system of forced labor prison camps. It is the first museum in the U.S. to directly address human rights in China. The museum contains over 100 books, documents, and photos about the Laogai, including numerous classified Communist Party documents. The museum highlights the injustice of criminal prosecution in China. Victim profiles and biographical interviews with survivors shed light on the devastating impact the Laogai has had on the Chinese people. Dozens of sample forced labor products are evidence that the system of repression continues to exist today, to the profit of the Chinese government.
Mission: To document and expose the Laogai, China’s vast and brutal system of forced labor prison camps, and to promote education, advocacy, and dialogue about China’s human rights issues.
