Beijing Massacre in 1989
As one of many survivals in non-violent Tiananmen protests in Beijing 1989, I am often haunted by blood and bodies, and I would never forget brave Chinese citizens who defended their civil and political rights.
In March 2004, Ding Zilin, who lost her 17-year-old son in the 1989 massacre, worried about losing traces of the lost victims in Beijing Massacre because of Relocation of Beijing Olympics.

- Whether any death occurred in Tiananmen Square during that time; -- This book told us how Dai Jinping, a student from Beijing Agricultural University, and Cheng Renxing, a student from Peoples University of China were killed in the square.
- How the martial law army and police had removed the bodies and destroyed the evidences so that a lot of people just disappeared and no one knows whether they are alive or dead
