Grave of independence fighter in Shanghai

A group of South Korean high school students visits the grave of a Korean independence fighter, Li Deok-sam, at Shanghai Wanguo Cemetery in the eastern Chinese city on Aug. 13, 2019, two days ahead of the 74th anniversary of Korea's liberation of Japan's 1910-45 colonial rule of Korea. Li, who was born in 1905 in what is now North Korea, acted as a secret liaison between Korea and the Korean provisional government in Shanghai. He defected to Shanghai in 1926 to join an armed organization fighting against Japan before being captured by Japanese police and dying due to torture the same year. At the cemetery, which holds the graves of more than 600 foreigners, his grave carries his alias, Li Young-son. Li used to carry out activities under multiple false names to disguise his identity.
