By Jeri VINE VOICE on November 15, 2009
Format: Paperback
This is an important book. It tells what happened to Catholics under Mao, and it's based on the actual diaries of some of the priests and nuns who survived the gulags.

It makes for gripping but disturbing reading. And it is especially horrifying to recall that "in Europe in the 1960s the Maoist program was touted as the 'good face' of Communism" (p 19). And yet, at the very moment that pictures of Mao adorned thousands of college dorm rooms in the west, millions were being killed, starved, or tortured in the real prison camp that was the country of China.

And yet in this book there is not one word of anger or hatred aimed at the Communists.

Father Tan Tiande was sent to the gulag in 1953, and he remained there until 1983. The most serious crime was preaching religion, of which he was accused. The prisoners were forced to work from dawn until dusk, backbreaking labor, and fed little if anything. Interspersed with the unending work were screaming sessions of 'thought reform' led by Communists, who bullied and beat anyone not properly slavishly subservient to Maoism.

Father Tan Tiade notes "People might wonder how I was able to survive in those horrific conditions. For someone who does not believe, that is a riddle without a solution. For someone who has faith, it is the will of God" (p 63).

Father Huang, who came from a long line of Chinese Catholics, also tells of his 25 years in the prison camps. He was subjected to a 'people's trial' where furious shouting and cruel beatings were organized by the Communists. After the preordained judgment, he was shipped off to a camp in the frozen north. He and other prisoners were shut up in cattle cars, where "there was no placed to sit. The only ventilation...

as we try to understand our relationship with China this book is very helpful. Do not let this happen here. Protect our constitution and our legacy of human rights of each individual...remember those who were imprisoned for political gain.

This book is a fantastic telling of the stories of Catholic martyrs tortured at the hands of Communist forces in China. It fills such a hole for me, as the Catholic mother of three boys adopted from China. It will help me explain to them how they became our American sons and why their biological people felt they had no choice but to give them up.
Thank you, Mr. Fazzini, for this wonderful book.
