Question of the Day
Who is this man on the left?
The man on my left is my uncle, Dr. H.D Chen from Shenyang, China. He was in town for a meeting of the American Academy of Dermatology.
During the Cultural Revolution, my Uncle was purged by the Communists and spent 10 years in exile on a farm in the middle of nowhere. His only crimes were that he was university-educated, the son of a landowner, and his older brother (my father) lived in the United States.
At around the same time, his father (my Grandfather) was convicted of being a "capitalist roader" and sentenced to a long term in the Chinese gulag. Unfortunately, he did not survive.
