This is one woman's harrowing story of imprisonment and survival
Gleebooks review of Witnessing History
This is one woman's harrowing story of imprisonment and survival in the face of the Chinese government's persecution of Falun Gong.
On 23 May 2000, the Chinese government sentenced Jennifer Zeng to re-education through forced labour. Her fellow inmates were drug addicts, prostitutes and traffickers in pornography. Jennifer's only crime was her belief in the three tenets of Falun Gong -Truthfulness, Compassion and Forbearance.
During her imprisonment, Jennifer saw many fellow Falun Gong practitioners tortured. Some died; many more remain in the camps today.
This is the powerful and moving story of how a bright, successful young scientist and happily married mother survived detention and torture, only to be forced to flee her family and homeland to seek asylum in Australia.
