Nanyang Overseas Chinese Jigong Anti-Japanese Monument in Kunming
English Name: Nanyang Overseas Chinese Jigong Anti-Japanese Monument in Kunming
Sitting in the lounge opposite the monument for a moment, I carefully studied the four golden characters “Chizi Gong Medal”. Some people have laid flowers beside the monument. People have not forgotten the martyrs who died for their country. They live forever in the hearts of the people. In the green trees, the monument is solemn and simple.
During the Anti-Japanese War, the Yunnan-Burma Highway was the lifeline, assembling, repairing vehicles, training drivers and repairing personnel were scarce. At the call of Mr. Chen Kageng, more than 3,000 overseas Chinese mechanics abandoned their good living conditions abroad and joined the Nanyang Overseas Chinese Engineer Service Corps and devoted themselves to the anti-Japanese and salvation service. More than 1000 Nanqiao mechanics devoted their lives to the main artery of the Yunnan-Burma Highway. This is introduced on the monument.
