French museum pulls Genghis Khan exhibition after China objects to name 'Genghis Khan'


A museum in France has delayed its Genghis Khan exhibition after an attempt by the Chinese Government to censor certain words and materials surrounding the showcase. […]

But the history museum, Château des ducs de Bretagne in Nantes, pushed back when Chinese authorities called for certain words, including “Genghis Khan,” “empire” and “Mongol,” to be removed from the exhibition, Agence France-Presse reports. Chinese authorities later asked for control over exhibition brochures, legends and maps, the museum said.

This is a bridge too far for many. China will need to step up their conquest of western institutions if they plan on rewriting history to this degree.
