With thousands still left wounded, a seemingly countless number of citizens reported lifeless, and a country still left with a damaged reputation. All of these were the results of a really unforgettable and shocking event which occurred on the 4th of June 1989, the Tiananmen Square massacre. In order to understand a better understanding of this historical event, I have put together some sub headings and questions to break it down into a far more understandable manner. What is Tiananmen Square? Tiananmen Square, located in China's capital, Beijing, is the major public space in the world. Being one of the major tourist attractions on the planet, it is ornamented by monumental general public buildings that set its sides and vast areas among that echoes this daunting event. It really is named following the Tiananmen Gate (Gate of Heavenly Tranquility) located to its North.
