Just how many people were killed during China’s Century of Humiliation (1839-1945)? And how does that compare to the deaths incurred from Communist party policies from the Great Leap Forward and Cultural Revolution (1949-1976)? The numbers have always varied. Luckily, Sinostand has some in-depth infographics on the data to paint us a clearer picture.
The first graph shows all major deadly events from the entire timeframe:
