Tiananmen 1989: A Book Display

25 years ago from April to June, tens of thousands of students gathered at the Tiananmen Square of Beijing to fight for democracy. The Chinese government condemned the movement as a “counter-revolutionary riot” and finally initiated a crackdown on June 3-4, which is also known as the Tiananmen Square Massacre or June 4th Massacre.

About 100 items mainly from the UBC Library collections are displayed to commemorate and review this important historical incident.  The display will be on between May 1 and June 10 on the Asian Library upper floor.
