Liu Dunping (b.1946) was born in Banli Village, Baimi Town, Hejiang County, Sichuan Province. In this interview, Liu talks about life during the Great Famine. Although his family had neither land nor house, they were classified as 'rich peasant' because of conflict with the chairman of the peasant association. They got less food in the People's Commune canteen and earned fewer work points. After his father starved to death in 1961, 14-year-old Liu Dunping quit school and worked at home, taking care of three younger sisters and his mother.
