Lin Fuchen (b. 1936) is a resident of Huanzidong Village, Shenyang, Liaoning Province. In this interview, Lin recalls the life during the Great Famine. When there was a good harvest in 1958, the corns that were not consumed were wasted and directly buried in the field. Then from 1959 the Great Famine started. Lin was working at Sanjiazi Coal Mine where he was given 55 jins of grains each month. Although he did not starve, the work there was very hard. During that time many people starved to death on the street, but no one had the strength to bury the dead bodies.
