The Jin-Cha-Ji Border Region was established in January 1938 by the Communists as an area of resistance against the Japanese. It straddled parts of Shanxi, Hebei and Inner Mongolia and existed until the end of World War 2. This is a very rare and large assemblage of photographs taken in the area from 1938-1945 and shows daily life and military activities during this period. It seems that the photographs are held in the collection of the Jin-Cha-Ji Border Region Memorial Hall in Baoding in Hebei province and have never previously been published. Illustrated throughout with hundreds of black-and-whIte photographs. In Chinese. Hard to obtain.
