A statue of Yu Xiusong, first secretary of the Shanghai Socialist Youth League, presented by the Shanghai Fushouyuan Cemetery, stands at the former residence of Yu in Zhuji.

An education base of the Shanghai History Research Center of the Communist Party of China with schools of Marxism studies of 11 universities in Shanghai was unveiled in Zhuji City, Zhejiang Province, over the weekend.

Zhuji City is the hometown of Yu Xiusong, first secretary of the Shanghai Socialist Youth League.

The venue will deepen the exchange of information between the two cities and raise awareness of the history of the CPC.

The base is located at the former residence and memorial hall of Yu (1899-1939), a two-floor Anhui-style building, which displays the revolutionary life of Yu.

The Shanghai CPC History Research Center was jointly established by the Shanghai Fushouyuan Cemetery and Shanghai Society of History of the Communist Party of China. The education base will also receive students from schools of Marxism studies of 11 universities such as East China Normal University and Shanghai University.

A number of revolutionary martyrs such as Yu, Chen Duxiu, one of the founders of the Communist Party of China, and Party leader Qu Qiubai, either rest or have memorial statues at the Fushouyuan Cemetery.

The cemetery has been promoting Red resources and conducting Red-themed exchanges to mark the 100-year anniversary of the founding of Communist Party of China next year, said Yi Hua, director of the culture and education commission of Fushouyuan.
