The whole devastating chapter is to be found here.
From Lynn A. Struve, Voices from the Ming-Qing cataclysm.
And speaking about Qing, here is an incredibly moving story about Manchus trying to be Manchus again:
Dekjin, a 28-year-old teacher, turns to the whiteboard and in a blue marker writes in Manchu script a word. Next to it she writes in Roman letters the way the word is spoken: m-a-n-j-u; Manchu.
Then she turns to the class and says, "This is who we are."
