The spirit of Yan'an

Sacred to China's revolution, Yan'an was where the first generation of Chinese revolutionaries, led by Mao Zedong, worked from 1936 to 1948. At a critical juncture, with Yan'an as the headquarters of the revolution, they led the people to rescue the nation from defeat and achieve liberation. This was when the "Yan'an spirit" was formed.

In this spirit, they shed dogma and forged a sound political direction, emphasized self-reliance, hardworking in arduous conditions, and service to the people.
