Little Swiss Girl Katharina's Wish Hasn't Come True Yet

Katharina is seven years old. At school she is a good student and all her schoolmates and teachers like her. At home, she is mummy and daddy’s clever child, a young helper. She helps mummy to look after her younger sister and do some simple housework. Katharina should be an unworried girl but actually she is feeling heavy in her heart because her big wish to end the persecution of Falun Gong has not yet come true.

When she was two years old, she obtained Falun Dafa together with her mother. At that time she was too young to read the book Zhuan Falun by herself. Her mother read the book to her, or she listened to the recorded tapes of various lectures. She did not lag behind doing the exercises and sending forth righteous thoughts. She likes reading the book of Master Li’s poems a lot, especially in Chinese. Her mother is a Czechoslovakian and does not understand Chinese whilst her daddy is an overseas Chinese who grew up in Switzerland and his Chinese is not very good either. Katharina made use of all the opportunities to learn from Chinese practitioners. It didn’t take long before she could recite nearly thirty of Master Li’s poems in both Chinese and German. Her cute appearance when she was reciting the poems using Chinese with clear pronunciation and a mellow voice often surprised Chinese practitioners.

At the time she obtained the Fa, the inhuman persecution of Falun Gong was happening in China. In order to let more people know the truth and end the persecution earlier, she participated in various activities all over Europe with her mother. Although she was unable to tell the facts to people personally, she earnestly did the exercises and handed out leaflets. People were extremely happy to accept leaflets from such a pure and lovely girl.

Having now grown up, Katharina can read Zhuan Falun by herself. She knows more and more about the persecution of Falun Gong practitioners in China and the poisoning of people all over the world by the lies of the Chinese Communist Party and the Jiang regime. She desperately wants to do something to end this persecution. On a vacation with her mum in Czechoslovakia, she and her cousin drew a number of paintings; some presented the scenes of sitting in meditation, some depicted the scenes of the persecution suffered by practitioners, and also the words “Falun Dafa is Good” written on each of the paintings, then they put them into the mailbox of the Chinese Embassy to Czechoslovakia in the hope the staff in the Embassy could understand Falun Gong and stop aiding the CCP to persecute innocent people.

At her birthday party, Katharina drew a lot of pictures showing Falun Gong’s goodness. With the help of her parents, she made the pictures as fine cards with a brief explanation for each picture and gave them to her friends. She also told them and their parents what Falun Gong is.

After attending a weekend anti-torture exhibition, Katharina especially hoped that she could participate in the performance at the exhibition to tell passers-by that Chinese children are also being persecuted simply because they or their parents practise Falun Gong. Practitioners used a picture of an oil painting named "Why" to create a poster for her. In the painting a wounded young boy and his mother are illegally imprisoned together and the boy’s facial expression seems to ask: “Why?” Beside the oil painting was printed an explanation, which told people about various sorts of persecution of Chinese children as well as little Katharina’s wishes. At every anti-torture exhibition, Katharina held the poster and sat to appeal for her young fellow practitioners in China.

On June 1st, International Children’s Day, Katharina used a special method to celebrate the children’s festival, collecting signatures for rescuing Falun Gong practitioner Qiu Minghua in China. Ms. Qiu is Swiss foreign student Wang Xiaoyang's mother; she has been put into jail for over half a year due because she refused to give up practising Falun Gong. Katharina hopes Ms Qiu will be released earlier and the persecution could be finished earlier. If so, not only would Wang Xiaoyang be able to re-unite with her father and mother; many other broken families could be reunited and the children could enjoy their happy childhood as before.

On International Children’s Day, Katharina wanted to pass on a message to young practitioners in Mainland China: “I really feel sorry you have suffered so much, but you do not have to be afraid, all of this will be over soon.” She said she would continue with her best efforts to let more people know the truth about Falun Gong and the persecution happening in China, then more people will come to help to fulfil her biggest wish to end this brutal persecution of Falun Gong earlier.
