Subject: March 14 Film Screening: "They Chose China"
The China Study Group will show the one-hour documentary, "They Chose
China," followed by a discussion. The film tells the story of the 23
American soldiers in the Korean War who were captured and became POWs
in Chinese prison camps. As the war ended the 23 declined
repatriation to the US and decided to live in China instead. Branded
at the time in the US as brainwashed turncoats, the group were
actually motivated by their belief in peace, justice and equality and
felt they would be persecuted during the McCarthy period back in the
US. The film provides a fascinating and revealing glimpse of a
little known incident of Cold War history.
