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, true to her promise to the many that did not survive, she embarked upon a mission to illuminate the realities of the occupation. The Voice That Remembers captures the strength, courage, and selflessness of this extraordinary woman – and provides an engrossing first-hand account of Tibetan history in the last half of the 20th century.
