Gao Zhisheng is one of the most heroic men in China, or anywhere. He is a human-rights lawyer who has put his neck on the line and paid for it with ten years of imprisonment and torture.

His wife and two children fled to America. One of those children is Grace, a senior in college, who is presently at the Oslo Freedom Forum, where Jay is too. They sat down for this “Q&A.” What’s it like to be the daughter of such a man? What does it do to you?

A lot, as you will hear.

    Thank you, Jay, for this wonderful interview! I read about Gao years ago through Voice of the Martyrs. Hearing from his daughter deepens my awe of him and his family. Have you thought about writing a book about the children of human rights heroes? I just shudder to think of being a young girl, w/ guards in your home, having your bathroom doors removed. Grace has overcome so much and is such an inspiration. God bless her and her family.
