Li Chengyu (b. 1946) was born in Yuhewan Village, Juewu Town, Hejiang County, Sichuan Province，and now lives in Longju Village, Baimi Town. In this interview, Li remembers her bitter life since she was four years old. When China was just 'liberated' in 1949, the Li family was classified as 'landlord'; everything was confiscated and her mother was taken for struggle sessions. In 1958, People's Communes were established, not only communal canteen was established in place of family ones, neighbors were forced to live together. Without enough food, she ate whatever she could find. Due to the landlord class, her mother's family was given very little food and five people starved to death.
