“A riveting account of the desecration of a culture, a religion, a family and a landscape.”—Mickey Spiegel, Human Rights Watch

When Adhe Tapontsang—or Ama (Mother) Adhe, as she is affectionately known—left Tibet in 1987, she was allowed to do so on the condition that she remain silent about her twenty-seven years in Chinese prisons. Yet she made a promise to herself and to the many that did not survive: she would not let the truth about China’s occupation go unheard or unchallenged.

The Voice That Remembers is an engrossing firsthand account of Ama Adhe’s mission and a record of a crucial time in modern Tibetan history. It will forever change how you think about Tibet, about China, and about our shared capacity for survival.
