Historical Records of Mao’s Cruel Tyranny May Be Missing ForeverPosted: March 27, 2012
What I suffered during the Cultural Revolution was not serious compared with lots of much serious cases. My father was only imprisoned 3 years and stayed in a labor camp for 7 more years till his rehabilitation. I only got a conclusion of having committed serious political mistake for refusing to inform about him. However, the trauma of worry for my father, the experience of being struggled against and humiliated, etc made me unwilling to talk about the period ever since until now when I realized that if nobody writes about it, no one will really understand what happened then and historical records of the tyranny may be missing forever.
I have created an Anti-Tyranny group on Facebook and hope that people who have suffered will join this group and write about their sad experience to enable those ignorant of the tyranny to be informed and on their alert when such tyranny emerges again.
