Categories: East Asia, Hong Kong (China), Education

Law Chi Wah, a well known independent book store owner in Hong Kong, was killed by the collapsing book boxes in his small warehouse before Lunar New Years. His body was found two weeks later, already rotten. Douban (zh) [1] has set up a special page for this book martyr. His friends and acquaintances set up a blog (zh) [2] in memory of him and his book store.
