Quotes: China’s Premier Wen Jiabao Reveals His Family Was Persecuted

Posted by Author on November 3, 2011

Wen Jiabao has spoken about how his family was persecuted under Mao. Here are the highlights from his speech.

“I was born into an intellectual family in Yixing, north Tianjin in 1942. My grandfather ran a school in the village. It was the first primary school to admit girls, against pressure from the local landlords. Many of the teachers were university graduates and some became professors after 1949”.

“My childhood was spent in war and hardship. The poverty, turmoil and famine left an indelible imprint on my young soul [ …] I realised only science, truth-seeking, democracy and hard work can save China.”

“I know well that the hardships did not just afflict my family, or the particular era I was born in, but that actually the history of China is a history of a nation in hardship.”

“After I went to university, my family suffered constant attacks in the successive political campaigns. My grandfather died of a cerebral haemorrhage in 1960. I carried him to the hospital. The school he taught at had kept his files, filled with one self-criticism after another, written in small neat characters.”

“In 1960, my father was also investigated for so-called ‘historical problems’. He could no longer teach and was sent to work on a farm on the outskirts of the city tending pigs. My father is an honest man, hardworking and diligent throughout his life.”
