Liu Chaoyun (b. 1933) is a resident of Longju Village, Baimi Town Hejiang County, Sichuan Province. He is Liu Chaogui's older brother. In this interview, Liu talks about his experience during the Great Famine. Whether constructing blast furnace or working for the Production Team during the Great Leap forward, some people worked hard, some didn't. Honest people had a rougher time. His father got edema disease and starved to death in 1959 when eating at the People's Commune canteen. The situation did not improve until households were allowed to contract land from the collective.
