IFCSS Statement on the Pass Away of Lois Wheeler Snow
The Independent Federation of the Chinese Students and Scholars expresses its sorrow of the pass away of Mrs. Lois Wheeler Snow, a former actress and writer whose criticism of human rights abuses in China who passed away on April 3, 2018, in Switzerland, at the age of 97. As the widow of the American journalist Edgar Snow, the author of the landmark book “Red Star Over China,” which had profound impact to the report and rise of the Chinese Communist regime, we praise Mrs. Snow’s effort and contribution to support justice, democracy and human rights in China, when the June 4 Massacre in Beijing in 1989 and other atrocity by the Communist regime in China totally shocked her.
Since 1989, Mrs. Snow has not only explicitly expressed her will to stand on the side of the Chinese people, but also become a consistent critic of the atrocity by the Chinese Communist regime, as well as to take firm actions supporting the victims and activists alike. In the spring of 2000, then 79 years old Mrs. Snow, accompanied by her son Christopher Snow, went to Beijing, in an effort to support Tiananmen Mothers, especially to give a book of her husband's photographs and writings, money and moral support to Ding Zilin, whose 17-year-old son was among those killed when troops crushed the pro-democracy demonstrations.
In June 2000, Mrs. Snow come all the way from Switzerland to Washington DC, at the invitation of IFCSS, to attend the 11thmemorial service for the victims of June 4 massacre in front of the Chinese embassy. “It just woke me up.” She talked about her change. Although she passed away, her spirit and her conscience surely serve as a great inspiration for us all.
Rest in peace, Mrs. Lois Wheeler Snow!
