Wang Huiling (b.1943) is a resident of Qujia Village, Yuqiao Town, Jingyang County, Shaanxi Province. In this interview, Wang remembers life during the Great Famine. Working at the agricultural cooperative then, she could barely sleep for two hours every night. It was good when the People’s Commune canteen first started, but it went from bad to worse and people had to eat chaff and wild herbs. People stole clovers from the field at night and ate corn skins because they were too hungry. She says even dogs would not eat those things now.
