Howard French: Scenes From a Nightmare: A Shrine to the Maoist Chaos

From New York Times:

Nothing but the faint sound of birds nesting on surrounding hilltops can be heard inside this new mountaintop site – part museum, part monument – that is the first public commemoration of one of the darkest chapters in China’s recent past.

Inside the circular pavilion that is the site’s centerpiece, the walls are lined with a series of gray tablets, each starkly engraved with images depicting the Cultural Revolution, China’s decade-long descent into madness, beginning in the mid-1960’s.
