Zou Ailing (b.1941) was born in Zoujia Village, Shangdian Town, Binzhou City, Shandong Province. She is Zou Quantang's older sister. In this interview, Zou clearly remembers the starvation she experienced during the Great Famine. When the 'Five Winds' first started, people had nothing to eat and the People's Commune canteen was not set up; Zou has eaten anything she could find. During the famine, her mother and two uncles all starved to death. The situation improved slightly later and people could eat sweet potato after earning work points, but many children starved to death.
