Father Stefan Wu Zhiquan (+1970), a native Chinese Orthodox priest who was beaten to death by communist Red Guards in an Orthodox Church in Harbin during the Cultural Revolution.
The Red Guards dressed him up clown's dressing gown, put a cap on his head, and smeared his face with soot. He was beaten over the head with a wooden hammer, braking his teeth, one by one, & beaten with steel rods on shoulders.
His tormentors spat on his cross and then shot him in cold blood.
