韩素音/Rosalie Elisabeth Kuanghu Chow (1917-2012)






"For all my life, I will be running in opposite directions, run from and run towards love; departing from and embracing China."

Chinese born Eurasian author, Han Suyin, died in Lausanne on 02nd November 2012. She was 95. 

Born a Chinese father and Belgian mother, Han became a doctor in the 1940s. She decided to become a author after her clinical experiences in Hong Kong in the 1950s. One of her novel A Splendored Thing was adopted by Hollywood as Love Is a Many Splendored Thing. The film was set in the 1940s-1950s Hong Kong and featured many Hong Kong locations. 

Her greatest contribution to Chinese community is, during the 1960s and 1970s, to push for  reconciliation between Communist China and Western countries. 

Han resided in Lausanne with her husband from the third marriage during her twilight years.

 Let us hear this song and remember the turbulent times.
