Testimonies of Survivors and Families of Victims of the June Fourth Crackdown

A collection of 31 first-person accounts by survivors of the June Fourth crackdown and family members of those killed. These accounts were collected by the Tiananmen Mothers and issued by HRIC in Chinese and English translation in 1999 to commemorate the victims on the 10th anniversary of the crackdown. Together, these accounts provide a picture of what happened on the night of June 3-4, 1989, and the days that followed, and are enduring testimonies supporting the demands of survivors and the families of the victims for truth, accountability, and compensation.
