Hero

My sister, who worked as a typist at Air Force Command, was killed.

The elder sisters screamed, “Lord, general!” No one stopped what I was watching around.
If you stop, you will be punishable for your lack of loyalty. None of the good adults have sincere loyalty to Kim. Even my sister, now thinking, would have thought that if herself did not jump into the sun, the whole family would be suspected of loyalty, and jumped in without thinking. The North Korean media praised the courage of his sisters and other “martyrs,” and Kim Jong Il awarded them the title of Republic Hero. (Ju Sung-il, North Korean People’s Army: Living Hell’s Hyoei)

Reflecting the seriousness of the energy contingency, stoves were invented and bought at homes that could produce strong firepower with a few trees.

The “Learning by Hidden Heroes” campaign was launched in 1977 with the direct participation of Father and Son Kim Il Sung. The essence of the movement lies in the slogan of dedicated labor “for the party leader” who consciously rejected material and spiritual support.

The following is about a heroic girl called Kim Kum-son.

A child without Kum-son The children’s performing arts corps without Kum-son … I was sorry to think about this, the enemy was the troupe of the troupe who was so much loved by the people of Wangqing, and the hibari in the escort area forever from my side The tragic news of Kum-son’s last moment inspired revolutionary masses in the Wangqing area, and Kum-son’s memorial ceremony was held in the valley at the entrance.
Dozens of infuriating young men and women in the East Manchuria prefectures have joined the Korean People’s Revolutionary Army to pledge Kum-son’s revenge. Comintern magazines and Chinese and Japanese publications reported on the death of this young hero, unprecedented in the history of the liberation struggles of the world’s oppressed ethnic groups, and Kum-son He praised his heroic life.

In his memoir, Kim Il Sung stated, “In recent years, novels and films based on Kum-son have been made, but that alone is not enough to convey her achievements to young people. In order to convey the achievements of such boy heroes to their descendants, it is ok to set up a statue of gold or bronze. ”(Toshio Miyazuka, Sumiko Miyazuka, North Korea: Amazing Textbook)
