On 12 August,The Times of Israel issued an article on the life of Dr. Jacob Rosenfeld,a Jewish internationalist who contributed to the liberation cause of the Chinese People. The report quoted Ambassador Zhan Yongxin’s written interview with the journalist, and the Embassy would like to publish the full text as follows:

The founding of the People’s Republic of China is a historic achievement of the Communist Party of China and the Chinese people, and it is also indebted to the sympathies and supports from friends across the world. Dr. Rosenfeld is an outstanding example of our international friends. He is a great doctor that saved many lives in China and a fearless soldier who devoted his life to the fighting of fascism.

Every year, the Chinese Embassy in Israel pays tribute to the tomb of Dr. Rosenfeld at Kiryat Shaul Cemetery, Tel Aviv. By doing so, we want to reaffirm that the Chinese government and its people will never forget the friends who contributed to the founding and development of the People’s Republic. Moreover, the stories of Dr. Rosenfeld also reflects the deep bond between the Chinese and the Jewish people, demonstrating how we helped each other in the darkest time of history. I trust the story of Dr. Rosenfeld will be a source of inspiration for both of our peoples and motivates us to further elevate the Innovative Comprehensive Partnership between China and Israel.
