The associated short article is well written and worth a read for anyone with an interest in history...

Believe me, I cried like I did when my fav aunt died when I first watched Holocaust in the 80s. Previous to that, I knew nothing about the nazis or racism, apart from the Japanese brutality in Malaysia. But as I read on, it's said that Hitler was Jewish himself and was bron out of incestous first cousin wedlock which made him mad? That true?
I bet you will cry like hell when you hear more stories about the CCP did to Chinese people.
I cried for a man whose name is Feng Zhenghu (Chinese economist and scholar), as he was refused to enter China 7 times (!) even he holds a CHinese passport. He was stuck in the Narita airport arrival hall
without food store and washing facility. He slept on a chair for 92 days. Passengers bought him food. Strangers helped him, a Narita Blockade was built by people from all over the world after they got to know this, they supplied him food (have you heard Berlin Blockade?). He has a PR for Japan (studied in Japan years ago), this time he came to Japan to visit his son, then he could not go back home anymore, 7 times he tried to go back to China, even after he arrived in Shanghai by plane, they did not let him enter!!! The ANA (JAL?) was told not to sell him flight ticket! One time he was forced by policemen to get off the plan, of cause with violence! After 7 times try, he refused to enter Japan and he stayed in the Narita airport arrival hall because that's his RIGHT to go back home!!
That's the real version of "Terminal" by Tom Hanks.
I happend to know his story via twitter, then asked my Japanese colleague to bring him some dry food as he had a business trip in Germany. I wrote a card to him to encourage him and wish he could be back home soon.
UN declaration of human rights
Article 13. (2) Everyone has the right to leave any country, including his own, and to return to his country.
But as a Chinese you don't even know if you have it.
BTW, his name was and is still censored in Chinese media, so most of Chinese did not know him and this incident. I told my friend in Shanghai. She said it's really a shame!
He's back home now after 92 days stuck at Narita airport, but still constantly under house arrest, a few months after he arrived in Shanghai his 90 years old mother died. Luckily his mother could spend her last days with him. If you are interested in, you can read:

Once i read the "Tian An Men Mother", Ding Ziling article, i was touched to tears!
She write, at beginning, a lot of her friends, relatives come to console her, say, one day, the government will give her son a saying. But when pressure become larger and larger, no people will come to her, everyone just try to keep a distance from her to avoid the troublesome.
Then, one day, when she come back to her home, which she have a long period did not stay in since she is trying to get some reply from government outside,
she found a some flowers in front of his house door which was send by unknown people!
she is so deeply touched and so was I! although those people who send flowers don't want to publicate their name to void to be troublesome by the government, but i still feel greatly touched. That show in the deep of every ordinally people heart, they still can judge what is right and what is wrong, and they still pursue for the Justice, Beautiful Life.
I believe one day the "Tian An Men Mothers" will got a reasonable saying from the country!
