Comrade Tong Zeng:

On June 30 Jinhua Daly published a report on your deeds to represent war victims and initiate damage compensation claim from Japan. Your action received approval from people nationwide, and also support from officials of the CPC Party, the Government and the Army at all levels, and was very gratifying; our county was situated in dense forests in deep mountains, back then it was inconvenient for transport access, the Japanese Invasion Army only arrived at the county town, the rural areas received no damage; nevertheless, war victims from Shaoxing City fled to the rural area in our county to make a living, and a lot of people settled down in the mountain villages. I interviewed a refugee whose name is Zhou Qingde, he told me sadly that: “We who are aged about ten were able to escape, but numerous children aged two to three or even only one week old babies were thrown into cesspool to drown to death.” As a result, we also want to mobilize these refugees to sign their name on the petition, today with this letter written by me, I want to request you to send me a signature form, so that I can copy it and ask for signatures. Wish you success.

Return mail address ‘Father Kong Fuqiu, Panshan Supply and Marketing Cooperative Station Shop, Pan’an County, Zhejiang Province’.
