Germany: Raising Awareness of the Genocide Against Falun Gong in Einstein's birthplace

On the 2nd of April, German practitioners organised an information day in Ulm. Ulm is Albert Einstein's birthplace. Einstein escaped from Germany when the Nazis persecuted the Jews. Another pair of local celebrities are the Hul brothers, who were persecuted to death for opposing the authoritarian rule of the Nazis.

At present, in China, and even in places outside China, similar cases of persecution are taking place against people who practise Falun Gong.

Falun Gong is a spiritual practice of peaceful meditation and exercises. The practice’s teachings are based on the principles of truthfulness, benevolence, and forbearance. It was introduced to the public by Mr. Li Hongzhi in 1992. People who learned the practice regained their health and improved their morality. Falun Gong spread rapidly by word of mouth, without the need for any advertisements.

The Chinese government was supportive at first after witnessing the positive effects of Falun Gong. However, in just seven years, the number of practitioners rose rapidly and exceeded the number of Communist Party members. Falun Gong practitioners included even the family members of government leaders.

Later, President Jiang Zemin saw Falun Gong as a threat and envied the degree of popularity Falun Gong enjoyed in China. He ordered the suppression of Falun Gong and established the “6-10 Office”. He invested enormous amounts of money and manpower into this Chinese Gestapo to carry out his personal vendetta of genocide against Falun Gong. Since 1999, Falun Gong practitioners, along with their family members and friends, have been brutally persecuted.

The CCP also smothered the truth through media propaganda that cheated the Chinese people and used lies and deceit to turn them against Falun Gong. Outside China, the communists also engaged in anonymous harassing phone calls and physical attacks to exert pressure on the foreign media and spread lies to foreign government officials.


It was a fine day in Ulm and the pedestrian area was full of people. Practitioners demonstrated the five sets of Falun Gong exercises on the one side and simulated methods of torture used on China’s imprisoned practitioners on the other. People were greatly attracted by the banners and posters, in particular those with details of the torture. Many people could not understand why such brutal things still happen in the 21st Century. They signed their names to support the lawsuit against Jiang Zemin.

People were deeply shocked by the photos of practitioners being tortured. One person took several newspapers and wanted to help distribute them. Many people learned about the persecution and went to tell their family and friends. They agreed that the Chinese Communist Party must end its human rights abuses immediately.
