CR/10 is a digital oral history platform that aims to collect and preserve the cultural memories of China's Cultural Revolution (1966-1976). This paper discusses how CR/10 functions as a Warburgian memory atlas and shapes multifaceted narratives of the historical incident. Through ethnographic research and semi-structured interviews with users within and outside academia, I examined the usability of CR/10 among various user groups and proposed design opportunities to further empower the interface. This paper offered a strong case on the datafication of cultural memories among cultural heritage institutions and contributed to digital archiving scholarship with an innovative methodological lens.
