Hi my name is Eric, I’m in seventh grade, and I’m a world history student in north California. The person I interviewed was my grandma. From my grandma I learned about Mao Tse-Tung and about the World War II. During the Communist Revolution they would take people that would stand out or have a good education to jail. He [Mao] also changed the requirements in high school. One was that people needed to learn a foreign language. If people knew a foreign language they could ask someone from a different continent or country for help. They also couldn’t learn science because people would be able to make warfare weapons. Another world historic event that happened [during my grandmas’s life] was World War II. The Japanese’s main goal was to get to the capital of China, which was Beijing. [Since my grandma’s family lived in Beijing,] my grandmas’s parents bought a boat to get to somewhere else that was safe. They went to a farm that very few people knew about. They lived there for about a month and a half.
So, do you know your family’s story?
