Red Scarf Girl, by Ji-li Jiang
In chapter eight "A Search in Passing" of Red Scarf Girl, the Red Guards finally arrive at Ji-li's house and search for fourolds, this happened because a knife was found in her neighborhood's community bin along with half burned photos of her family (which they'd burned in the past day). The Red Guards identified Ji-li's fourth aunt in one of the pictures and connected them to the knife, thus bringing them to her house, which had a fair amount of fourolds such as the stamp book her grandmother had given her.
This event was similar to and reminded me of a scene during the movie "The Book Thief" when the nazis came to search Liesel's house to see if her family was hiding any jews. It was similar to the Red Guards searching Ji-li's house, not only because in both scenes searching was involved, but because in both cases they did have the things searched for and they were both in a time period in which their freedom was taken from them. Both Liesel and Ji-li also suffered from political events that hurt people, some of which, they knew (Ji-li's aunt and Liesel's best friend Limey).
This connection between these two titles made me realise that there was actually a lot in common between World War II and the Cultural Revolution, such as the fact that both included leaders of a country, during both events countless people died, both events happened around the same period of time and both events are ones in which many, many people cringe when they look back at them.
