A heritage of suffering
It’s May, that means a lot of history needs to be covered. You can’t love the nice things without acknowledging the pain of those who made them. This is Afakv’s Memories, and we’re dedicated to making you remember.
May is a month in which many things happened to the Chinese. This history of pain is oft swept under the rug, this is a travesty of history, and one we seek to correct.
