Bodies in Birmingham exhibition could be executed Chinese prisoners, says doctor
Real Bodies show at NEC leads to call for an investigation into exhibits’ identities
The bodies of 20 Chinese people featured in a UK museum exhibition could be those of prisoners once detained in labour camps, and victims of the death penalty in China, according to a leading doctor.
The Real Bodies exhibition, currently at the Birmingham NEC, publicly displays the skinless preserved bodies. But there are now calls for an investigation into their identities and cause of death to be held while they are in the UK.
