From May 26th until May 28th, the international “Truthfulness, Compassion, Forbearance” Art Exhibition was held in Amstetten City Hall. The exhibition was advertised in many regional newspapers, one reputable national daily newspaper and also by a regional television station.

All those who viewed the exhibition were deeply touched. Most everyone went from picture to picture and read all the description in detail. Some were deeply shocked after viewing the inhuman torture re-creations. They approached practitioners to hear more about the reasons for the persecution. A child who had come to the exhibition with her mother almost cried. She asked her mother, “Why do people do something like this?” The woman took her daughter into her arms and told her about the situation of Falun Gong in China.
Many people couldn’t understand the inhumanity of the persecution and that something like this still happens today. They also could not understand why no one really heard about this in Austria.
An elementary school teacher was deeply taken aback that the Austrian media had not reported about this situation. He wrote the following in the guest book: “Deeply touching exhibition. It brings to the forefront that humans can become enemies and torturers of humans. All want to do business with the people in China, that is, they want to make money. This is totally immoral. Where is the moral courage to stand up for one’s beliefs? Please, show these pictures on TV and over the Internet, to wake up the conscience of many people!” He bought an introductory book about Falun Gong and wished the exhibition much success.
Many of the visitors expressed their sympathy and support with the commentaries in the guest book:
“Fortunately, there is a person who does not only see economic benefits, but also that which is hidden.”
”I hope that this exhibition will achieve that more and more people will awaken and realise that truth and peace will win in the long-term.”
