The 10th edition of the annual "Predecessors and City Memory" forum was hosted via webcast for the first time on Friday afternoon. The event paid tribute to the revolutionary roads of the Communist Party of China in Shanghai by taking audiences to several former revolutionary spots and sharing the life stories of revolutionists.

Viewers were taken to the memorial hall of the Socialist Youth League, forerunner of the Communist Youth League, in a shikumen (stone-gated) building in Yuyangli, an old neighborhood on downtown Huaihai Road M., the former site of the editorial office of the periodical La Juenesse (also known as New Youth), and the Fushouyuan Cemetery.

The live stories of Chen Duxiu, one of the founders of the Communist Party of China, Yu Xiusong, first secretary of the Shanghai Socialist Youth League, and Chen Wangdao, the first person to translate the "Communist Manifesto" into Chinese, are told at these sites by experts and their descendants.
