Le musée d’Histoire de Nantes has postponed an exhibition about the Mongol emperor Genghis Khan due to China’s hardening position against Mongolian minorities. The Chinese government does not want the museum to use the words “Genghis Khan”, “empire” or “mongol”.   The museum’s director accuses Chinese authorities of trying to rewrite history.  The decision has been taken “in the name of the human, scientific and ethical values that we defend.”
