Socialism at work:

Between the winter of 1958 and the spring of 1961, it is variously estimated that between 16.5 and 45 million Chinese living in rural areas died of starvation and related illnesses, a cataclysm now known as the Great Famine.

Today, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) refers to this period as the ‘Three Years of Natural Disasters’.
