The exhibition consists of 70 photos that cover the spread of Falun Gong around the world, the persecution of Falun Gong and organ harvesting, and the peaceful resistance of practitioners around the world.

The exhibition was held in the cultural centre in the Bakirkoy District. Many people came to see the exhibition, and some returned with their families. Due to the show's popularity, the hours of the exhibit were extended to 9 pm every day.

Visitors came from all walks of life. They were shocked by the brutality of the persecution. Many wrote comments condemning the persecution and calling for its end. Some were also interested in learning Falun Gong.
