    Default Most Important Picture of the 20th Century



    Nobody knows his name. He stood in front of tanks as they were leaving from the overnight massacre that happened on June 4th, 1998 in Tienanmen Square. He is known simply as "The unknown man." Its thought that thousands and thousands of people were killed that night by the PRC military. Yet the Chinese records only indicate that only a hundred or so people were actually killed. What happened to this man? Was he found by the government, taken away and tortured? Executed? Or was he never found? Only the Chinese government knows.

    We talked about this today in my 20th century history class and it really got me thinking. Post some of your thoughts about this event/image/mystery man

    I thought his nickname was Tank Man or something? Anyways he would have been ran over in a heartbeat except he wasn't ran over do to the pressure of the media.

    I read up some more on it, and apparently some Chinese officials came out a few years ago and said that he was not executed. He might have been sent to a "Re-education" camp.
