Father Albertus Wei remained in custody and continued to be tortured by the Chinese Communist guards.
One time, he was suspended for six consecutive days and nights by the wrists, which had been tied behind his back. He weakened, sickened.
Then, on November 27, 1951, Father Albertus’ body, covered in open, oozing wounds, was given to the monks. Not wanting another martyr to die in their prison, the Communists contacted the monks and tossed out Father Albertus.
Tall, several inches over 6 feet, his discolored, skeletal body lay crumbled on a black board. His face was a pale gray and full of pus and blood. He was nearly dead, so nearly dead, but he clung on, until he breathed his last, 20 days later.
