Witnessing History

One woman's fight for freedom and Falun Gong

by Jennifer Zeng

Allen & Unwin, 2005, paperback, ISBN 1741144000

Very Good Condition, creasing to front cover, uncreased spine

'Struggling with a life-threatening illness and a need to understand her place in the world, Jennifer had immersed herself in many Western and Eastern philosophies before finally finding the answers she was seeking in Falun Gong.  A few short years later her newfound faith saw her blacklisted and imprisoned in a purpose-built labour camp.  Jennifer was forced to squat for hours in the blistering sun, endure hours of physical and verbal abuse, and knit garments until her hands bled to feed the booming Chinese economy.  During this time 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.'
