They called him "flat-nosed" because of Ali and Hassan's characteristic Hazara Mongoloid features. For years, that was all I knew about the Hazaras,  that they were Mogul descendants, and that they looked a little like Chinese people.

他们叫他“塌鼻子”,因为艾利和哈森是哈扎拉人,有特有的蒙古人特征。几年后,我知道哈扎拉族是蒙古的后代,他们看起来有点像中国人。

School text books barely mentioned them and referred to their ancestry only in passing. Then one day, I was in Baba's study, looking through his stuff, when I found one of my mother's old history books. It was written by an Iranian named Khorami.

学校教科书很少提到他们,仅仅只提到过他们的祖先。有一天,我在爸爸的书房翻阅他的资料时,我找到我妈妈的一本旧的历史书。它(这本书)是伊朗人Khorami所著。

 I blew the dust off it, sneaked it into bed with me that night, and was stunned to find an entire chapter on Hazara history. An entire chapter dedicated to Hassan's people! In it, I read that my people, the Pashtuns, had persecuted and oppressed the Hazaras.

我吹去书上的灰尘,那天晚上偷偷将它带上床,吃惊地发现里面关于哈扎拉人的故事竟然写了满满一章。一整章描述的是哈森的民族!在书里,我读到我的民族,普什图族人曾经迫害和剥削哈扎拉族人。

It said the Hazaras had tried to rise against the Pashtuns in the nineteenth century, but the Pashtuns had "quelled them with unspeakable violence." The book said that my people had killed the Hazaras, driven them from their lands, burned their Homes, and sold their women.

书上说在19世纪,哈扎拉人曾试图反抗普什图人,但是普什图人用“无法形容的暴力镇压了他们”。书中说我的民族曾杀害哈扎拉人,驱逐他们离开他们的土地,烧毁他们的房屋,卖掉他们的女人。
