Current spiritual leader and the recipient of the 1989 Nobel Peace Prize
Briefly supported and then openly resisted Chinese rule in Tibet
Mao repressed all organized Tibetan resistance

The history of Tibet under Chinese Communist rule is not exactly parallel to other countries or peoples that are or were “victims of Communism.” Tibet is primarily a victim of China and only secondarily of Communism of the Chinese variety. All previous Chinese regimes claimed sovereignty over Tibet; but it was only the Chinese Communists who were finally able to impose actual Chinese control and administration there. Tibet was a victim of Communist ideology and political methods in that the Chinese Communists used Marxist-Leninist ideology to justify their “liberation” of Tibet and they used Communist methods of political control to enforce their conquest and subjugation of Tibet.
