96. 嚴鳳英 Yan Fengying (a famous actress of Huangmei opera)

Yan Fengying (04/13/1930—04/08/1968) was born in Tong town of Anhui province, where the local opera was Huangmei (literally meaning Yellow Plum) opera. She was the most famous actress of that opera. At the age of ten, she started to learn acting and singing of the opera, and went with the troupe to act some side roles. In 1930s, the troupe entered Anqin, a big city in Anhui province. The opera was so welcomed by the public that they had to play three times a day. But her family did not like her to be an actress of Huangmei opera, and so she had to flee to Nanking city and gave up the acting of the opera.
        During her stay in Nanking city, she had to sing in a public ballroom. At that time in China there were such ballrooms in big cities, where there was a band with female singers to sing to the music. Customers could dance to the music too. There was a dancing floor in the middle. There were also some female dancers, who could dance with male customers for money. The girls did that for a living.
        In 1947, she went to learn Beijing opera, which helped her later in her acting of Huangmei opera. In 1949, Anhui province wanted to develop the Huangmei opera and invited her to come back to Anqin city. In 1952, there was a joint performance of operas in Shanghai. Her acting was widely praised. She was only twenty-two then. In 1954, she had the Huangmei opera Marriage of a Goddess with a Mortal made into a film.

The authorities accused her of spy and for the reason to search for a radio transmitter, or a spy camera, they had her abdomen opened and her insides taken out. During the cultural revolution many innocent people were accused of spies, and therefore, persecuted without any evidence. They just wanted to have a reason to persecute someone, anyone, they wanted to torture. However, what they found in her belly was more than one hundred sleeping pills. She thus died a tragic death.

97. 張志新 Zhang Zhixin (a member of as well as a victim of CPC)

Zhang Zhixin (12/05/1930—04/04/1975) was a female member of the Communist Party of China. She was born in a music family. Her father had joined the revolutionary army against Qing dynasty. She learned Russian and worked as a translator. On the National Day of 1955, she got married and in the same year, she joined the Communist Party. Later she had a daughter and a son.
        In the so-called Great Cultural Revolution, she was thrown into prison, though a party member, because she criticized Mao's class-fight theory. At that time, whoever dared to criticize Mao would be a criminal, called Reactionary. As she persisted that she was right in the criticism of Mao's theory, she was sentenced to death. In the prison, she had been repeatedly raped and tortured. Her mouth and tongue was sewed up with iron wires. She was put on her back a heavy burden of 9 kg, and her legs wore heavy fetters. In May of 1970, she was sentenced for death in the local court. But in a higher court of province level, her case was reconsidered. She was thought that she had no action, had only oral criticism, and so her sentence was changed to two years imprisonment, then was changed again to fifteen years. During the long custody, she had shouted “Down with Mao Zetong!” So her verdict was changed for life. At a gathering, she stood up and shouted that Mao Zedong was the cause of wrong action of the party. Then she was changed to death sentence.
        Before she was transported to the execution site, her throat was cut lest she should yell out some words against the Gang of Four to the crowds coming for the sight. When she died, her daughter was twelve and her son was only three.
        On the first of March in 1979, she was redressed and defined as a revolutionary martyr. In August at the second session of the fifth National People's Congress, a cadre of high rank said, “From the wrong case of Zhang Zhixin, we can understand that if there is no socialist democracy and law system, the dictatorship of proletariat will surely become the dictatorship of fascism.” Think she yearned to join CPC and worked for CPC, but as the result, she was killed by CPC.

98. 林昭 Lin Zhao (a victim of CPC tyranny)

Lin Zhao (12/16/1932—04/29/1968 AD) was her pen name, and her real name was Peng Linzhao. She was born in Suzhou city. During the reign of KMD government, her father had been the mayor of Wu town and her mother was the general manager of Dahua newspaper, which supported Communist Party of China. She secretly got donations for CPC, and also set up an underground radio station for CPC, too. She had been arrested for that by Japanese. Therefore, in her family, mother tended to CPC and father tended to KMD politically. Lin Zhao did not know which way she must take. In 1943 when she entered a high school in Suzhou city, the influence of her mother got the upper hand on her. So she tended to CPC. In July of 1949, she was enrolled in a school run by CPC. This school was named the “Revolutionary Cradle.” When CPC wanted her to reveal what her farther had done against CPC, to show her loyalty to them, she had to invent some untruth about her father. Afterwards, she felt sorry for her father. After she graduated from that school, she joined in the land reform movement. The land reform team, to show that they had power to do anything for the peasants, put the landlords in big vats filled with cold water as it was winter. The landlords trembled with cold. Lin Zhao said that she felt cruel happiness. It was revolution. To show to CPC that she had cut off relationship with her father, she changed her name from Peng Linzhao to Linzhao, hence he pen name later.
        In 1954, she was enrolled in the department of journalism in Beijing University. She decided to be a best reporter in Mao Zedong's time. Now as she faced reality, she found that reality was not what she had imagined. So good. As she got mature in thinking, she wanted to write what she thought. Then she became a co-editor of the university magazine. In the spring of 1955, she joined the poetic society of Beijing University and was an editor of Poetry Magazine of Beijing University, which stopped publishing in the autumn of 1956. Then she became a member of the editing committee of “Red Tower,” which was a student's literary magazine.
        On the nineteenth day of May in1957, another member of the editing committee put up a so-called Big-Word Paper criticizing something wrong in reality. The member was later expelled from the committee. Once Lin Zhao said to the member that she felt that she was like being deceived. Anyway, she supported the criticism.
        When the so-called Anti-Rightist movement began, she was defined as a rightist because of her support of the rightist idea. Lin Zhao did not know what to think. She said the truth, but she was told wrong. She swallowed a lot of sleeping pills for suicide, but she was saved. On the twenty-fifth day of December in 1957, the other member was secretly arrested and sentenced for eight years in labor camp. She got only three years, but she did not go to the labor camp owing to her poor health. In Beijing University, out of eight thousand student and staff, fifteen hundred were rightists, though redressed twenty years later. But her bad dream was not over yet.
        Instead of laboring in a camp, she labored in the reference room of the department of journalism and in the same reference room a male rightist worked too. They gradually fell in love with each other. When they applied to the authorities for the permission for marriage, their application was denied. They must first reform their thinking, not getting married. In September of 1959, the male rightist was sent to a labor reform camp in Xinjiang Autonomous Region in the farthest west of China. Her sickness worsened and in winter, she coughed blood. She wanted to take leave to go back to Shanghai to get recovered. In the spring of 1960, she was allowed to go to Shanghai. Her mother came to fetch her.
        After some rest her health got better. In Shanghai, she began to know three male students from Lanzhou University. They planed to publish a magazine named “Star and Fire” so that they could have somewhere to publish their writings to criticize the bad current affairs. When their first issue came out, all the members of the magazine were arrested, and so was she in October of 1960. At the beginning of 1962, she was released on medical parole. In September that year, She went to Suzhou city and drafted  the program and  articles of a political organization called “Fighting Union of Free Youth of China.” Then they asked a foreigner to take out two of their articles “We are guiltless” and “Letter to the Principle of Beijing University” to some foreign countries to publish there. In December that year, she was put in jail again. In the prison when she wanted to write something, she had no pen and paper. So she wrote on white sheets with her own blood. As she did not yield and insisted on what she thought right, she was handcuffed behind the back. Sometimes, they put two pairs of handcuff on her wrists. Even when she had stomach ache or had periods, they did not take off even one pair of handcuff from her.
        On the thirty-first of May in 1965, she was sentenced for twenty years. Then she wrote her declaration for the sentence, still in her own blood. Part of her writing was thus:
        “... This is a shameful verdict, but I proudly listen to it. This is the evaluation of my personal action of fight by the enemy. I heartily feel proud of myself to be a fighter. … I must do more to deserve your evaluation. Besides, the so-called verdict is senseless to me. I despise it. Wait and see: the historical court will soon give a formal verdict to people after me. You, those rogues, villains and traitors, will be real criminals. Victory to justice! Long live freedom! Lin Zhao 06/01/1965.”
        On the twenty-ninth of April in 1968, she got a new verdict of death. She was shot dead in the airdrome of Longhua, a place in Shanghai. Her body was never delivered to her family. But on the first day of May that year, the police came to see her mother to demand her to pay five cents for the bullet they used to shot her daughter dead. Her father made suicide. Her mother became insane and made suicide on the Bund of Shanghai.
        In April of 2009, her sister Peng Lingfan brought all her personal stuff to USA and donated them to the reference room of the library of Stanford University. Her stuff included her articles written in blood, her open letters and her private letters, also family photos. Let's salute the heroine!

99. 孫維世 Sun Weishi (a woman raped by Mao and killed by his wife)
Sun Weishi (1921—10/14/1968) was born in a revolutionary family. She had a brother Sun Yang. Her father died early and she was adopted by Zhou Enlai (1898—1976), who was the premier of the State Council of the People's Republic of China. She was nicknamed “Red Princess.”
        Her father was a friend of Zhou Enlai. Both joined revolution. Once they wanted to meet secretly. Her father carried her in his arms, telling her to look behind his back to see anyone following him. She was then only five years old. When her father met Zhou in a house, the little girl stayed at the window to look out if anyone approached. If anyone appeared in her sight, she was told to make a sign.
        In April of 1927, her father was arrested in Shanghai by KMD government and executed later. Her mother escaped with her to Wuhan city, but presently they returned to Shanghai and continued her underground work for CPC. The girl helped her mother to send secret messages here and there. A little girl would attract less attention. From nine to sixteen, she and her mother led a vagabond-like life. During that period of time, she was educated only by her mother. At twelve years old, she attended the Bridgeman Girls' School in Peking.
        In 1935, her mother took her back to Shanghai. At first her mother wanted to resume her school education, but she liked to learn acting. Therefore, through the assistance of someone working for CPC in Shanghai to be enrolled in an acting class run by Touhou Project belonging to Tianyi Film Company.  There were some ten students in the class. A few actors and actresses were invited to come to the class to have talks with students. One of the visitors was Jiang Qing (Mao's fourth wife, called Lan Ping at the time), who even gave a photo of hers to the girl. The girl, when finishing the class, had a role in the movie called New Year's Money, which was given to children as their pocket money for the New Year. Afterwards, her mother took her back to Peking to let her study in a school there.
        In 1937 when the Sino-Japanese war broke out, she was in Shanghai and joined in the Shanghai Drama Salvation Troupe performing short plays to call upon people against Japanese invaders in the streets and schools, etc. In 1938, she joined CPC and went to YanAn city to work there. In that year,  Jiang Qing went to YanAn city, too. To remind people of the January 28th Incidents that happened in Shanghai, whoever could act rehearsed a play called Shanghai blood Sacrifice, in which Jiang Qing acted the role of the second concubine and the girl Sun Weishi was assigned the role of a daughter.
        In July of 1939, when Zhou Enlai fell from the horseback and broke his right arm bone, he was sent to Russia for the treatment. Sun Weishi wanted to accompany him there. Therefore, she was permitted to enter the Moscow Oriental University. Then she transferred to the acting department and then conducting department of drama college.
        In march of 1940, many Chinese people who were in Russia went back to China to participate in the war against Japan. Sun Weishi was allowed to stay in Russia to further her studies. But she experienced the war in Russia against Nazi Germany. At that time Lin Biao was in Russia for treatment of his health problem. In 1941, before he came back to China, he asked the girl to marry him, but she refused him. In 1943, he wrote a letter to the girl, saying that he got married. In November of 1946, Sun Weishi returned to YanAn city. At the end of that year, she asked to join in the drama troupe in Harbin city and was approved to go there. But on the way she received a telegram saying that she could not go to Harbin. This telegram was sent by the new wife of Lin Biao who lived in Harbin city at that time. The new wife was afraid that if Lin Biao met the girl again, something awkward might happen between them. In September of 1948, she was transferred to a university troupe in Huabei region. She conducted and rehearsed a drama named A False Alarm. They performed the drama to entertain the troops in fighting in 1948. And in 1949 when they entered Beijing, they performed the play in a theater openly to the common people in the city, and got warm applause.
         In December of 1949, when the People's Republic of China was founded, she went with Mao Zedong (12/26/1893—09/09/1976) and Zhou Enlai to Russia to see Stalin in Moscow. As she had been to Russia, she knew Russian and was assigned to be the team leader of interpreters. Mao wanted to learn Russian from her. It was said that on the train to Moscow, Mao sent for her to his compartment and raped her. She complained to Zhou, her adoptive father, but Zhou could do nothing to help her, as he was always afraid of Mao.
        Anyway, she was still engaged in her career of acting and conducting. She translated Russian plays and conducted them. She was then assigned to work with the Chinese Youth Art Theater as the general conductor and the director of the Art Committee and the vice theater leader. She was also CPPCC National Committee for the second, third and fourth sessions. She was a director of the National Drama Association, too. In 1952, she conducted the Imperial Envoy by Nikolai Gogol and also conducted Uncle Vanya by Anton Chekhov. Both were greatly cheered by the public. She translated and conducted the Russian children's play Little Rabbit. In September of 1956, the Cultural Ministry of the People's Republic of China founded the Central Experimental Drama Theater and she was appointed the vice director of the theater as well as the general conductor.
        In September of 1976, when the so-called Great Cultural Revolution was on the swing, Jiang Qing, Mao's wife, said that Sun Yang, a vice president of the Chinese People's University, was a spy. Several days later, he was found dead in a cell of the university. Sun Yang was the brother of Sun Weishi. In December of the same year, Jin Shan, the husband of Sun Weishi, was put in prison on the excuse that he was a spy, too. Then some men were sent to search her home and took away all her personal letters and photos.
        At the midnight of the first of March in 1968, some men broke open her door and took her away by force on the excuse that she was a spy. Then she was put in a dark room and tortured. She was kept in a secret place lest Zhou, her adoptive father, came to her rescue. On the fourteenth of October in 1968, she was beaten to death at the age of forty-seven. She was found with a long nail knocked into her head. All these were plotted by Jiang Qing behind her back. It was said that Jiang Qing hated her because Mao liked her. Besides, Jiang Qing persecuted almost everyone of the actors and actresses in Shanghai because they knew too much of her lewd history in Shanghai, which she would like to conceal. And Sun Weishi had also worked with her in Shanghai

100. 傅索安 Fu SuoAn (from a red guard to a spy)

Fu SuoAn (06/05/1949—04/13/1974) was born in a so-called intellectual family in Tianjin city, close to the capital Beijing. It was a harbor city with  the Yellow Sea to its east. Her father was a doctor in a hospital. Her mother was a translator of English language in a research institute. She was beautiful and her photo of childhood was enlarged and displayed in the show window of a photo gallery. Her photos had been taken from baby till 1968. But her parents burned them all when she escaped into Soviet Union.
        In 1966 when the so-called Great Cultural Revolution began, she was only a student of the first grade in a high school (equivalent to tenth grade in America). She was a student leader in her class and a vice secretary of the Youth League branch. She was an active girl. Then she became a red guard, and even one among the red guards received by Chairman Mao on TianAn Men Square on the eighteenth of August in 1966. Twenty years later, her younger brother gave a description of her in 1968 as a tall girl, 1.70 meters tall, weighing 55 kilograms, with oval face, regular features, large eyes, black curving eyebrows. She was always wearing a green uniform, with a green cap to match. And a red armband round her upper right arm, bearing the words: Red Guard.
        Then the red guards toured all over the country to create chaos as Mao planned. But most of them just went for sightseeing. However, she was a different girl. She went on the social investigations. During the three months, she had been to the far west region and to the northeastern China and Inner Mongolia. She did not go to cities. Instead, she went to small villages. Qima village was only twenty kilometers from the Argun River, which divided the territory of China and the Soviet Union. In that village, she called an old woman as her dry-mother (almost equivalent to god-mother, but without religious sense). Just a closer relationship than others.  Somewhat like a relative.
        At the end of 1966, she returned to her hometown. At the time, Mao called on people to rebel against local governments. That was his second plan to seize power from the local followers of his political enemy: Liu Shaoqi. When she was back to Tianjing city, there were a lot of so-called rebellious groups. As she was an active girl, many groups wanted her to join them. However, she refused. She wanted to organize one of her own. During the cultural revolution, the family background of a student mattered much. Any student who came from the family of landlord or businessman could not join the red guards. If the father or mother of the student was a reactionary, the student could not join the red guards, either. Most rebellious groups did not take such students in. But she accepted all those students who wanted revolution. While general students were criticizing their teachers and school masters, she skipped them and directly criticized the head of the educational bureau of the city. That was why she could be one of the red guards to see Mao on the TianAnMen Square.
        At the time, almost everyone in any group wanted to be the leader. As she took in all sorts of students, there certainly were some ambitious ones who wished to replace her. Therefore, she was supplanted out of her own group. She left with some of her faithful followers. Then she needed a seal to organize another group. She asked a neighbor to engrave one for  her, but the neighbor was scared. For secret engraving of a seal without the approval of the police was deemed guilty. Of course, in such chaos, some bold engravers would do it. As this neighbor refused, Fu was angry and hit him on the head. He fell in swoon. He was the clue person in an important case. Therefore, Fu was wanted by the police. She had to escape out of the city to Qima village, to her dry-mother for shelter.
        Only two kilometers from the Qima village, there was another village called Baojia village.  They jointly built a small reservoir for irrigation. But the water supply from the reservoir was not enough for both villages. Therefore, they often had disputes.
        As the universities stopped enrolling during the movement, all the high school students were sent to the countryside to live and work with peasants. They lived separately in the homes of local peasants. Fu went to the Qima village in this name, as she had been there before. She wished to help the Qima villagers. So one night, she led a group of Qima villagers to Baojia village. And there arose a fight between the two villages. Five of the Baojia villagers were injured, including three with broken bones and one with a blinded eye. The police came to stop it. She was thought to be the cause of the fight. She was thereby criticized, beaten and confined. She could not stand it and fled, but was caught and handcuffed. She was a clever girl and studied how the handcuff worked. So one night she opened the handcuff and jumped out from a window. She ran away under the cover of night from the village towards the Argun River. She was a good runner at school. When she was swimming across the river to the other side, she was found by a Soviet patrolling boat. Across the river, there was the No. 36 area of the KGB. She was taken to the captain, who wanted to see her ID. But she said that no ID card was issued to anyone in China. When she was asked what was her identity, she replied that she was a red guard. She wanted to lead the conversation to politics, which might benefit her a bit.
        The captain asked again, “If you are a red guard, why you come into our territory?” She replied, “I risked my life to come to you for my political asylum.” Question again, “Why's that?” Answer, “ Because China has deserted Marxism-Leninism. So I want to come to Soviet Union for that.”
        Therefore, the captain reported the event to the headquarters of KGB. Andropov, head of KGB at the time, was struck with a wonderful notion: why not to train the Chinese girl to be a spy for their country. She might be useful some day in dealing with China. So she was sent to Tver Intelligence school. At school, she showed herself to be an excellent spy.
        Her first task was to assassinate the Soviet traitor, Yuri Pavlov, who escaped to Japan and lived in Tokyo at the time. For necessary preparations, she stayed in a private place. A man came to show her how to use  a thick pen gun, which, when triggered, would discharge some poisonous gas. The gas would vanish in one or two seconds without leaving any trace to be found. Then A woman came to teach her Japanese, till all the necessary training was completed.
        Yuri Pavlov had been a soldier in the Patriotic War of Soviet Union against Nazi Germany. After the war he was sent to study in a military academy and became a weapons expert. He had used money freely, and too freely that he was always in heavy debt. He also liked beautiful girls. In November of 1967, when he was invited to Bulgaria on lecturing tour. But there he disappeared and betrayed his country. In March of 1968, he got death verdict in the military court in his absence. Later he was found living in Philadelphia. So Soviet Union sent some spies to assassinate him, but failed. The second try was also failed when he was found in Hawaii. About one year ago, he was accidentally found in Tokyo, Japan. KGB concluded that why two tries failed was  because the assassins they sent were all his kinsfolk that he was always on the alert of. So this time, if they sent a Chinese girl, it would be out of his expectation. Besides, a beautiful girl might be easier to get access to him.
        In April of 1970, Fu used a fake passport, in disguise of a Hong Kong resident by name of Li Nali to travel to Japan to visit her uncle. She went through Japanese customs without a hitch. KGB arranged a mid-aged Japanese man to come to meet her. He was called Takashi Saburo, who was supposed to be her landlord, i.e., she would stay in his house. But he knew nothing of her task. She paid him her board and food, plus some gifts.
        That first night, she took out a photo of Pavlov after his plastic surgery. After impressing his image in her mind for a long while, she was sure that she could recognize him among the crowds. She burned the photo and flushed the ash in the toilet. Next day, she toured Tokyo the whole day. She was surprised to find that the city was exactly the same in even details to the model in the Stereo sand table in KGB office.
        From the third day, she began to follow and watch her target. Pavlov lived in Tanimachi in the south of Tokyo. It was a luxury apartment house, only fifteen minute walk from her lodging place. His daily life was that at six every morning he would walk in a nearby small garden, for forty-five minutes, accompanied by two bodyguards. Then he went to the flyover in front of the garden. There were some newspaper vendors and some shoe polishers. He would buy a newspaper and sat before a shoe polisher to have his shoes polished while reading the newspaper. Then he went home. After breakfast, he would ride in his car to his office, where he would stay till seven in the evening and go home. He lived with his Japanese wife and two pretty female secretaries as well as maidservants. He liked beautiful women. The plan of assassination was to be carried out in his office building. Generally the bodyguards would pay less attention to their protective object when he was at home or in office. Supposedly, the two places would provide more chance for the job. Nevertheless, after she studied the situation in the office building, she found otherwise. She must find some other ways to finish her task.
        She contacted her liaison to get permission to change the plan and got supplies for the job. She disguised her as a newspaper vendor on the flyover. She would use a poisonous smog gun to kill him. The poisonous gas should touch his face for the fatal result. As Pavlov came to buy newspaper, she held out a newspaper, smiling to him. He liked a beautiful girl and bought the newspaper from her. It might be a chance to kill him, but she found that since she was sitting on a low footstool, she could not reach his face unless she should stand up. But any movement from her would catch the eyes of the bodyguards right behind him. She regretted that she did not think of disguising herself as a shoe polisher. She would be in a closer position to aim her gun at his face.
        When Pavlov bought the newspaper from her, he asked, “You are supposed not Japanese?” she said, “No. I came from Hong Kong.” She smiled her best smile. She had to give up this chance. She must change a bit of the details of her action. She needed more people to help her.
        It was Monday, the thirteenth of April in 1970. Thirteen is a black day for European people. When Pavlov accepted the newspaper from the girl, he murmured, “Charming Oriental beauty.” As usual, he went to sit to have his shoes polished while he smoked a cigarette, reading the newspaper. All of a sudden, there was the shout “help!” from the girl. He looked that way and saw two big guys chasing the girl. The girl ran his way. Naturally she was holding a rolled-up newspaper, inside which she hid her gun. Pavlov called to her, “Come here!” And to his bodyguards, “Stop them!” Meaning the two big guys. Just then a guy kicked the butts of the girl, sending her forth towards Pavlov. The two bodyguards turned to stop them while the girl rushed to Pavlov, and shot the gun to his face. Pavlov gave out a cry of pain and the girl hid the gun in her clothes and threw down the newspaper. The two bodyguards ran to Pavlov and got him to the hospital, where he died. The girl left Tokyo and flew back to Moscow.
        General Cimbal, the head of the action department of KGB, received her and gave her a gold watch of female style made in Switzerland. She was then sent to a rest home for her nerve and physical recovery from the task. Generally she could rest for two months, but after half a month she was sent to rest in Hong Kong. She realized that she might soon have some new task.  
        After that she was assigned several other tasks. She did them successfully. On the thirteenth of September in 1971, she was ordered to fly to Öndörkhaan in Mongolian Republic. On the way there she was told that an airplane from China crashed there and nine bodies were in it. One of them should be that of Lin Biao. As she was from China and had chances to see Lin or his picture before, she had more ability to recognize which body was Lin's. When she reached there, the nine bodies were already covered up by local people. Their faces changed a little through rotten process. She first recognize Ye Qun, the wife of Lin, by her long hair. She was the only one wearing long hair. Others were all men. Then she pointed out which was Lin's body best as she could by his short stature and skulk.
        In 1974, she was found to have severe liver disease and felt painful besides having high fever. Although she had injection to ease her pain, she could no longer bear it. She was found to hang herself in her room by a cloth rope made from torn sheets on the thirteenth of April. Thirteen is indeed a bad number.
