During the reign ofKMD government, her father had been the mayor of Wu town and hermother was the general manager of Dahua newspaper, which supportedCommunist Party of China. She secretly got donations for CPC, andalso set up an underground radio station for CPC, too. She had beenarrested for that by Japanese. Therefore, in her family, mothertended to CPC and father tended to KMD politically. Lin Zhao did notknow which way she must take. In 1943 when she entered a high schoolin Suzhou city, the influence of her mother got the upper hand onher. So she tended to CPC. In July of 1949, she was enrolled in aschool run by CPC. This school was named the “RevolutionaryCradle.” When CPC wanted her to reveal what her farther had doneagainst CPC, to show her loyalty to them, she had to invent someuntruth about her father. Afterwards, she felt sorry for her father.After she graduated from that school, she joined in the land reformmovement. The land reform team, to show that they had power to doanything for the peasants, put the landlords in big vats filled withcold water as it was winter. The landlords trembled with cold. LinZhao said that she felt cruel happiness. It was revolution. To showto CPC that she had cut off relationship with her father, she changedher name from Peng Linzhao to Linzhao, hence he pen name later.
    In1954, she was enrolled in the department of journalism in BeijingUniversity. She decided to be a best reporter in Mao Zedong's time.Now as she faced reality, she found that reality was not what she hadimagined. So good. As she got mature in thinking, she wanted to writewhat she thought. Then she became a co-editor of the universitymagazine. In the spring of 1955, she joined the poetic society ofBeijing University and was an editor of Poetry Magazine of BeijingUniversity, which stopped publishing in the autumn of 1956. Then shebecame a member of the editing committee of “Red Tower,” whichwas a student's literary magazine.
    Onthe nineteenth day of May in1957, another member of the editingcommittee put up a so-called Big-Word Paper criticizing somethingwrong in reality. The member was later expelled from the committee.Once Lin Zhao said to the member that she felt that she was likebeing deceived. Anyway, she supported the criticism.
    Whenthe so-called Anti-Rightist movement began, she was defined as arightist because of her support of the rightist idea. Lin Zhao didnot know what to think. She said the truth, but she was told wrong.She swallowed a lot of sleeping pills for suicide, but she was saved.On the twenty-fifth day of December in 1957, the other member wassecretly arrested and sentenced for eight years in labor camp. Shegot only three years, but she did not go to the labor camp owing toher poor health. In Beijing University, out of eight thousand studentand staff, fifteen hundred were rightists, though redressed twentyyears later. But her bad dream was not over yet.
    Insteadof laboring in a camp, she labored in the reference room of thedepartment of journalism and in the same reference room a malerightist worked too. They gradually fell in love with each other.When they applied to the authorities for the permission for marriage,their application was denied. They must first reform their thinking,not getting married. In September of 1959, the male rightist was sentto a labor reform camp in Xinjiang Autonomous Region in the farthestwest of China. Her sickness worsened and in winter, she coughedblood. She wanted to take leave to go back to Shanghai to getrecovered. In the spring of 1960, she was allowed to go to Shanghai.Her mother came to fetch her.
    Aftersome rest her health got better. In Shanghai, she began to know threemale students from Lanzhou University. They planed to publish amagazine named “Star and Fire” so that they could have somewhereto publish their writings to criticize the bad current affairs. Whentheir first issue came out, all the members of the magazine werearrested, and so was she in October of 1960. At the beginning of1962, she was released on medical parole. In September that year, Shewent to Suzhou city and drafted the program and articles of apolitical organization called “Fighting Union of Free Youth ofChina.” Then they asked a foreigner to take out two of theirarticles “We are guiltless” and “Letter to the Principle ofBeijing University” to some foreign countries to publish there. InDecember that year, she was put in jail again. In the prison when shewanted to write something, she had no pen and paper. So she wrote onwhite sheets with her own blood. As she did not yield and insisted onwhat she thought right, she was handcuffed behind the back.Sometimes, they put two pairs of handcuff on her wrists. Even whenshe had stomach ache or had periods, they did not take off even onepair of handcuff from her.
    Onthe thirty-first of May in 1965, she was sentenced for twenty years.Then she wrote her declaration for the sentence, still in her ownblood. Part of her writing was thus:
    “...This is a shameful verdict, but I proudly listen to it. This is theevaluation of my personal action of fight by the enemy. I heartilyfeel proud of myself to be a fighter. … I must do more to deserveyour evaluation. Besides, the so-called verdict is senseless to me. Idespise it. Wait and see: the historical court will soon give aformal verdict to people after me. You, those rogues, villains andtraitors, will be real criminals. Victory to justice! Long livefreedom! Lin Zhao 06/01/1965.”
    Onthe twenty-ninth of April in 1968, she got a new verdict of death.She was shot dead in the airdrome of Longhua, a place in Shanghai.Her body was never delivered to her family. But on the first day ofMay that year, the police came to see her mother to demand her to payfive cents for the bullet they used to shot her daughter dead. Herfather made suicide. Her mother became insane and made suicide on theBund of Shanghai.
    InApril of 2009, her sister Peng Lingfan brought all her personal stuffto USA and donated them to the reference room of the library ofStanford University. Her stuff included her articles written inblood, her open letters and her private letters, also family photos.Let's salute the heroine!

InNovember of 1946, Sun Weishi returned to YanAn city. At the end ofthat year, she asked to join in the drama troupe in Harbin city andwas approved to go there. But on the way she received a telegramsaying that she could not go to Harbin. This telegram was sent by thenew wife of Lin Biao who lived in Harbin city at that time.

    100.Fu SuoAn (from a red guard to a spy)
    FuSuoAn (06/05/1949—04/13/1974) was born in a so-called intellectualfamily in Tianjin city, close to the capital Beijing. It was a harborcity with the Yellow Sea to its east. Her father was a doctor in ahospital. Her mother was a translator of English language in aresearch institute. She was beautiful and her photo of childhood wasenlarged and displayed in the show window of a photo gallery. Herphotos had been taken from baby till 1968. But her parents burnedthem all when she escaped into Soviet Union.
    In1966 when the so-called Great Cultural Revolution began, she was onlya student of the first grade in a high school (equivalent to tenthgrade in America). She was a student leader in her class and a vicesecretary of the Youth League branch. She was an active girl. Thenshe became a red guard, and even one among the red guards received byChairman Mao on TianAn Men Square on the eighteenth of August in1966. Twenty years later, her younger brother gave a description ofher in 1968 as a tall girl, 1.70 meters tall, weighing 55 kilograms,with oval face, regular features, large eyes, black curving eyebrows.She was always wearing a green uniform, with a green cap to match.And a red armband round her upper right arm, bearing the words: RedGuard.
    Thenthe red guards toured all over the country to create chaos as Maoplanned. But most of them just went for sightseeing. However, she wasa different girl. She went on the social investigations. During thethree months, she had been to the far west region and to thenortheastern China and Inner Mongolia. She did not go to cities.Instead, she went to small villages. Qima village was only twentykilometers from the ArgunRiver, which divided the territory of China and the Soviet Union. Inthat village, she called an old woman as her dry-mother (almostequivalent to god-mother, but without religious sense). Just a closerrelationship than others. Somewhat like a relative.
    At the end of 1966,she returned to her hometown. At the time, Mao called on people torebel against local governments. That was his second plan to seizepower from the local followers of his political enemy: Liu Shaoqi.When she was back to Tianjing city, there were a lot of so-calledrebellious groups. As she was an active girl, many groups wanted herto join them. However, she refused. She wanted to organize one of herown. During the cultural revolution, the family background of astudent mattered much. Any student who came from the family oflandlord or businessman could not join the red guards. If the fatheror mother of the student was a reactionary, the student could notjoin the red guards, either. Most rebellious groups did not take suchstudents in. But she accepted all those students who wantedrevolution. While general students were criticizing their teachersand school masters, she skipped them and directly criticized the headof the educational bureau of the city. That was why she could be oneof the red guards to see Mao on the TianAnMen Square.
    At the time, almosteveryone in any group wanted to be the leader. As she took in allsorts of students, there certainly were some ambitious ones whowished to replace her. Therefore, she was supplanted out of her owngroup. She left with some of her faithful followers. Then she neededa seal to organize another group. She asked a neighbor to engrave onefor her, but the neighbor was scared. For secret engraving of a sealwithout the approval of the police was deemed guilty. Of course, insuch chaos, some bold engravers would do it. As this neighborrefused, Fu was angry and hit him on the head. He fell in swoon. Hewas the clue person in an important case. Therefore, Fu was wanted bythe police. She had to escape out of the city to Qima village, to herdry-mother for shelter.
    Onlytwo kilometers from the Qima village, there was another villagecalled Baojia village. They jointly built a small reservoirfor irrigation. But the water supply from the reservoir was notenough for both villages. Therefore, they often had disputes.
    Asthe universities stopped enrolling during the movement,all the high school students were sent to the countryside to live andwork with peasants. They lived separately in the homes of localpeasants. Fu went to the Qima village in this name, as she had beenthere before. She wished to help the Qima villagers. So one night,she led a group of Qima villagers to Baojia village. And there arosea fight between the two villages. Five of the Baojia villagers wereinjured, including three with broken bones and one with a blindedeye. The police came to stop it. She was thought to be the cause ofthe fight. She was thereby criticized, beaten and confined. She couldnot stand it and fled, but was caught and handcuffed. She was aclever girl and studied how the handcuff worked. So one night sheopened the handcuff and jumped out from a window. She ran away underthe cover of night from the village towards the ArgunRiver. She was a good runner at school. When she was swimming acrossthe river to the other side, she was found by a Soviet patrollingboat. Across the river, there was the No. 36 area of the KGB. She wastaken to the captain, who wanted to see her ID. But she said that noID card was issued to anyone in China. When she was asked what washer identity, she replied that she was a red guard. She wanted tolead the conversation to politics, which might benefit her a bit.
    The captain askedagain, “If you are a red guard, why you come into our territory?”She replied, “I risked my life to come to you for my politicalasylum.” Question again, “Why's that?” Answer, “ BecauseChina has deserted Marxism-Leninism. So I want to come to SovietUnion for that.”
    Therefore,the captain reported the event tothe headquarters of KGB. Andropov, head ofKGB at the time, was struck with a wonderful notion: why not to trainthe Chinese girl to be a spy for their country. She might be usefulsome day in dealing with China. So shewas sent to Tver Intelligence school. At school, she showed herselfto be an excellent spy.
    Her first task wasto assassinate the Soviet traitor, Yuri Pavlov, who escaped to Japanand lived in Tokyo at the time. For necessary preparations, shestayed in a private place. A man came to show her how to use a thickpen gun, which, when triggered, would discharge some poisonous gas.The gas would vanish in one or two seconds without leaving any traceto be found. Then A woman came to teach her Japanese, till all thenecessary training was completed.
    Yuri Pavlov hadbeen a soldier in the Patriotic War of Soviet Union against NaziGermany. After the war he was sent to study in a military academy andbecame a weapons expert. He had used money freely, and too freelythat he was always in heavy debt. He also liked beautiful girls. InNovember of 1967, when he was invited to Bulgaria on lecturing tour.But there he disappeared and betrayed his country. In March of 1968,he got death verdict in the military court in his absence. Later hewas found living in Philadelphia. So Soviet Union sent some spies toassassinate him, but failed. The second try was also failed when hewas found in Hawaii. About one year ago, he was accidentally found inTokyo, Japan. KGB concluded that why two tries failed was becausethe assassins they sent were all his kinsfolk that he was always onthe alert of. So this time, if they sent a Chinese girl, it would beout of his expectation. Besides, a beautiful girl might be easier toget access to him.
    InApril of 1970, Fu used a fake passport, in disguise of a Hong Kongresident by name of Li Nali to travel to Japan to visit her uncle.She went through Japanese customs without a hitch. KGB arranged amid-aged Japanese man to come to meet her. He was called TakashiSaburo,who was supposed to be her landlord, i.e., she would stay in hishouse. But he knew nothing of her task. She paid him her board andfood, plus some gifts.
    Thatfirst night, she took out a photo of Pavlov after his plasticsurgery. After impressing his image in her mind for a long while, shewas sure that she could recognize him among the crowds. She burnedthe photo and flushed the ash in the toilet. Next day, she touredTokyo the whole day. She was surprised to find that the city wasexactly the same in even details to the model in the Stereosand tablein KGB office.
    Fromthe third day, she began to follow and watch her target. Pavlov livedin Tanimachiin the south of Tokyo. It was a luxury apartment house, only fifteenminute walk from her lodging place. His daily life was that at sixevery morning he would walk in a nearby small garden, for forty-fiveminutes, accompanied by two bodyguards. Then he went to the flyoverin front of the garden. There were some newspaper vendors and someshoe polishers. He would buy a newspaper and sat before a shoepolisher to have his shoes polished while reading the newspaper. Thenhe went home. After breakfast, he would ride in his car to hisoffice, where he would stay till seven in the evening and go home. Helived with his Japanese wife and two pretty female secretaries aswell as maidservants. He liked beautiful women. The plan ofassassination was to be carried out in his office building. Generallythe bodyguards would pay less attention to their protective objectwhen he was at home or in office. Supposedly, the two places wouldprovide more chance for the job. Nevertheless, after she studied thesituation in the office building, she found otherwise. She must findsome other ways to finish her task.
    She contacted herliaison to get permission to change the plan and got supplies for thejob. She disguised her as a newspaper vendor on the flyover. Shewould use a poisonous smog gun to kill him. The poisonous gas shouldtouch his face for the fatal result. As Pavlov came to buy newspaper,she held out a newspaper, smiling to him. He liked a beautiful girland bought the newspaper from her. It might be a chance to kill him,but she found that since she was sitting on a low footstool, shecould not reach his face unless she should stand up. But any movementfrom her would catch the eyes of the bodyguards right behind him. Sheregretted that she did not think of disguising herself as a shoepolisher. She would be in a closer position to aim her gun at hisface.
    When Pavlov boughtthe newspaper from her, he asked, “You are supposed not Japanese?”she said, “No. I came from Hong Kong.” She smiled her best smile.She had to give up this chance. She must change a bit of the detailsof her action. She needed more people to help her.
    Itwas Monday, the thirteenth of April in 1970. Thirteen is a black dayfor European people. When Pavlov accepted the newspaper from thegirl, he murmured, “Charming Oriental beauty.” As usual, he wentto sit to have his shoes polished while he smoked a cigarette,reading the newspaper. All of a sudden, there was the shout “help!”from the girl. He looked that way and saw two big guys chasing thegirl. The girl ran his way. Naturally she was holding a rolled-upnewspaper, inside which she hid her gun. Pavlov called to her, “Comehere!” And to his bodyguards, “Stop them!” Meaning the two bigguys. Just then a guy kicked the butts of the girl, sending her forthtowards Pavlov. The two bodyguards turned to stop them while the girlrushed to Pavlov, and shot the gun to his face. Pavlov gave out a cryof pain and the girl hid the gun in her clothes and threw down thenewspaper. The two bodyguards ran to Pavlov and got him to thehospital, where he died. The girl left Tokyo and flew back to Moscow.
    General Cimbal, thehead of the action department of KGB, received her and gave her agold watch of female style made in Switzerland. She was then sent toa rest home for her nerve and physical recovery from the task.Generally she could rest for two months, but after half a month shewas sent to rest in Hong Kong. She realized that she might soon havesome new task.
    Afterthat she was assigned several other tasks. She did them successfully.On the thirteenth of September in 1971, she was ordered to fly toÖndörkhaanin Mongolian Republic. On the way there she was told that an airplanefrom China crashed there and nine bodies were in it. One of themshould be that of Lin Biao. As she was from China and had chances tosee Lin or his picture before, she had more ability to recognizewhich body was Lin's. When she reached there, the nine bodies werealready covered up by local people. Their faces changed a littlethrough rotten process. She first recognize Ye Qun, the wife of Lin,by her long hair. She was the only one wearing long hair. Others wereall men. Then she pointed out which was Lin's body best as she couldby his short stature and skulk.
    In 1974, she wasfound to have severe liver disease and felt painful besides havinghigh fever. Although she had injection to ease her pain, she could nolonger bear it. She was found to hang herself in her room by a clothrope made from torn sheets on the thirteenth of April. Thirteen isindeed a bad number.
