Learn from Lei Feng
English Translation: "Learn from Lei Feng's Example"
This poster shows Lei Feng, a People's Liberation Army soldier and folk legend revered in China as a model citizen, where his life is celebrated every year on March 5th with an official "Learn from Lei Feng" holiday. He is famous for his supposed modesty, selflessness and devotion to Mao Zedong and the revolutionary cause.
Children are an especially common trope in posters about Lei Feng, and in this image several children, wearing the red scarves of the Communist Young Pioneers, are shown holding textbooks and propaganda works while the spirit of Lei Feng looks down upon them from above.
