  • France: “These Paintings are Extraordinarily Powerful”

    “Everyone knows the Chinese communist regime is an autocratic one. What I understand from these paintings and the testimony of this lady makes me feel uneasy. We should not forgive the persecution inflicted upon any form of belief or cultivation which should respect one. We have no right to infringe on others. Regardless of men, women or children, their bodies should not be infringed on. As a mother and grandmother. I cannot help but think of my own children and other children after seeing this persecution. History always repeats itself. I just wonder whether one day people would truly understand that we need to think carefully about this persecution no matter whether it occurs today or in the future.”
