Grown up in Europe, Peter Peverelli witnesses the final, and very turbulent, year of the Cultural Revolution. He is the first and last Dutch student in China to work in a rural commune and in a department store as part of the curriculum. When Prime Minister Zhou Enlai dies, he personally offers his condolences to Zhou’s widow. But he is also forced to flee his dormitory during the destructive earthquake of July 1976. Peter’s diary allows us to learn how his experience affected the world outlook of young Western students.
