“Xinjiang Police Files: Images of horror outrage the world”, report München.

The film was earlier released In German:

More materials on the leak in this online bibliography (periodically updated) on the genocide in the Uyghur region (East Turkestan). There you find, for example, the BBC version:

Leaked data offers significant new insights into China’s Uyghur detention camps – John Sudworth,  BBC News, May 24, 2022.

Hacked files reveal Chinese “shoot-to-kill” policy in Uighur detention camps – John Sudworth, BBC News, May 24, 2022.
A huge collection of data including images linked to China’s mistreatment of Uighurs and other ethnic minorities has been handed to the BBC. The information was hacked from Chinese police computers.  It includes evidence of a shoot-to-kill policy for anyone trying to escape from so-called “re-education” camps in the western region of Xinjiang. Over the past few years more than a million Uighurs are believed to have been detained in the camps and made to undertake forced labour. China denies claims of torture and carrying out forced sterilisations and abortions.  It says claims that Uighurs are being mistreated and made to undertake forced labour are “entirely fabricated”.

The faces from China’s Uyghur detention camps. By John Sudworth. BBC, 24 May 2022.
Thousands of photographs from the heart of China’s highly secretive system of mass incarceration in Xinjiang, as well as a shoot-to-kill policy for those who try to escape, are among a huge cache of data hacked from police computer servers in the region.

Note that these efforts, and others, show us that real journalists are still doing their job, even as Chinese genocide regime tries so hard to block the truth …

… and even as the UN ‘high commissioner for human rights’ Michelle Bachelet so dramatically disappointing the millions of people that had placed hope in the UN making a difference through her May visit to China — but for reasons that are hard to understand, she capitulated to the genocide regime in China, parroting its version of events — a disaster for the UN, too; see for example:
