Today marks the 35th anniversary of one of the deadliest days in US history. On November 18th, 1978, over 900 people died in the largest mass-suicide of modern times. The events took place in Jonestown, Guyana, a community founded by members of the US-based utopian socialist cult the Peoples Temple. Incited by their leader Jim Jones, members consumed a cyanide-laced Flavor-Aid or Kool-Aid drink in what is described as a ritual suicide. In an interview with the BBC World Service rereleased today, one Jonestown survivor speaks frankly on her experiences at Jonestown. The Atlantic also spoke with a survivor for a separate 2011 article.
