Idaho Falls–Stand Up For Idaho, an Idaho Falls-based nonpartisan citizens’ organization that peacefully and actively advocates for the rights and liberties of all Idaho citizens, will feature a review of the book, “Tombstones, the Great Chinese Famine,” at their next Wednesday meeting on August 2.
SUFI’s announcement reads:
The author of “Tombstone,” Yang Jisheng, spent 10 years interviewing hundreds of eyewitnesses, consulting archives in more than a dozen Chinese provinces, during which time he accumulated documents totaling millions of words, and 10 notebooks full of notes on the Great Famine. Tombstone [is] a book written to memorialize the 36 million Chinese men, women, and children who starved to death under the totalitarian policies of the Chinese Communist Party. 1958-1962. This book is outlawed in China.
[Book reviewer] Deanna Andrus grew up in the Idaho Falls area, and graduated from Idaho Falls High School in 1959, the same year that tens of millions of people in China were starving to death under the murderous policies of the Chinese Communist Party and their leader, Mao Zedong.
The class will be held at the Snake River Event Center (Shilo Inn), located at 780 Lindsay Blvd. in Idaho Falls. Doors open at 5:30 p.m., and the class begins at 6:30 p.m.
