Almost the entire family in China has been tortured to death in the Chinese Communist Party’s (CCP) ongoing persecution of faith, leaving behind a 13-year-old boy.

Even before the young boy was born, his parents had been arrested and persecuted multiple times because of their faith in Falun Gong (also known as Falun Dafa), a traditional Chinese self-cultivation and discipline that has been violently persecuted by the CCP since July 1999.

Over 13 years ago, new mother Yang Xue, her 9-month-old baby son, and her persecuted elderly mother were brought into a detention center in Suizhong County, Liaoning province, where they learned Yang’s husband had died in police custody, reported the Falun Dafa Information Center.

Fan Dezhen, who weighed 150 pounds and was healthy before the arrest, was 55 days into his detention when he died; he was only 33 years old.

When Fan’s family saw his dead body in the morgue, they were left in shock. His face was twisted, eyes wide open, limbs bruised, and anus loose; there was an inch-long cut on his abdomen, and he was merely skin and bones. The family inquired about his severely bruised body, but a guard said, “Dead people are all like this!”

In the years that followed, Yang’s parents, too, were persecuted to death for the same reason. Last year in November, Yang herself succumbed to death at the age of 41 after enduring years of abuse and distress. Their teen son is now orphaned and left to fend for himself in the communist country.

The family tragedy resulting from the CCP’s persecution detailed in this report is just one of the countless many where young children are left orphaned after their families are persecuted to death for refusing to give up their faith.

Father Persecuted for Faith

Yang, who studied fine arts at Yanshan University in Hebei province, worked as a designer in Shenyang, Liaoning province, before returning to her hometown in Suizhong County to work as an art teacher.

She and her husband—like millions of other Chinese people—practiced Falun Gong. However, after former CCP leader Jiang Zemin launched a nationwide campaign of persecution to eradicate the peaceful practice in July 1999, countless law-abiding adherents were pronounced “state enemies” overnight, leading to mass arrests across China.
