Liu Zhengying (b. 1945) is a resident of Diaoyutai Village, Yindian Town, Suizhou City, Hubei Province. Liu's mother died of disease when she was less than one year old, and her father raised her while remained single. This interview was co-completed by Zhang Mengqi and Liu's grandson, Zou Xue song, who was a first-year middle school student. In this interview, Liu recounts in detail how she cooked wild herbs, tree bark, plant leaves, and chaff to survive famine in 1959, and how she made sweets by barley sugar and peanuts in 1961. In 1959, when the famine was most serious, Liu went to the local leaders' conference location to stole food, which were cooked for the leaders, and then distribute them to her family and neighbors. This starving situation did not change until 1962, when People's Commune finished.
