As I understand it the CR affected mainly urban areas only as it was initially directed at the educated, and the countryside was left to produce food because of the memory of the GLF...

I heard little about GLF.
I am not sure if the following happened in GLF period.

Everyone need to hand in pans and pots to village Party (government). All of people would eat in the large dinning room of the village. All of children would be sent to the public kindergarten and ate in the large dinning room of the village. However, it lasted not long. No enough food to feed.

And the year  .........  ?

People used to say "the past", not which year, but definitely from the late 1950s to the first half of 1970s.
Old people used to say, you are so happy compare with our past.

hehe..I read a lot of such stories from novels and books. (Oh, nothing about such experiences wrote in school textbooks.). It's happened to city people.

I grew up in rural area. So, I heard a lot about the living in rural area.
