Rediscovering a Chinese legend: The untold wartime tale of Dr Li Linsi

By Taylor Wong | chinadaily.com.cn | Updated: 2017-07-07 13:50

A new chapter

After the liberation of Shanghai in 1949, Li was back to where he started. As an esteemed professor at the Shanghai International Studies University, Li nurtured, through his teaching, a large number of quality language talents.

In October 1970, Li passed away in Shanghai at the age of 74.

Li will be remembered as an anti-fascist fighter for his resilience and intelligence to fight against Japanese aggression, a savior for his humanitarian spirit to save hundreds of Shanghai Jewish refugees at the cost of his own loss, and a legend for his wisdom and patriotism in the history of the world’s anti-fascist endeavors.

The author is a researcher at Beijing Foreign Studies University.
