China is on everyone's mind lately, but this important story is generally not part of today's discussion. It will shed light on the recent protests in Hong Kong. From the early 1950s till the early 1980s, hundreds of thousands of Chinese fled from the mainland to Hong Kong. While some of these people were economic elites hoping to migrate to other countries or political aspirants hoping to join the Kuomintang (KMT) in Taiwan, others risked everything to start a new life in the colonial city.  

What happened to these people when they arrived in Hong Kong?
How did they put their imprint on Hong Kong?

Are there parallels to today's refugee crisis?
