In 1940, Chou Zigang, a progressive young man from the Yan’an Anti-Japanese War, was suddenly appointed by the central government to establish the Yan’an Nursery. Chou Zigang refused: I didn’t come to Yan’an to be the king of children! Unexpectedly, Mao Zedong was the first to send his daughter Mao Jiaojiao to the nursery. Since then, the orphans of martyrs, the descendants of war soldiers, and the red blood of revolutionary leaders such as Mao Zedong and Liu Bocheng have been handed over to those who are not well-cultured or even literate Country ladies and aunts.
The nursery has experienced the “battle against whooping cough”, “Liu Huabei’s death”, “renamed Los Angeles Nursery”, “enemy plane bombing”, “secret counterattack”, “struggling to cross the Yellow River”, “Yangko Opera Storm”, and “Visiting Group of Chinese and Foreign Journalists” “And other real historical events. In 1947, when the Kuomintang bombed Yan’an, Mao Zedong and Zhou Enlai instructed the nursery to retreat with the first batch of Zhongzhi agencies. During the retreat, the team of more than 300 people and more than 100 carriages was violently attacked by the enemy. A casualty of children followed the People’s Liberation Army into Beijing. On the day of the founding ceremony, the children stood in the square and watched the five-star red flag rise.
