The classic quote “A man can be destroyed but not defeated” comes from Ernest Hemingway, a man who authored many great works that continue to resonate influence throughout the world. However, it’s a little-known fact that Hemingway enjoys a lasting affinity with Chongqing. In April 1941, Hemingway visited the then war-torn city of Chongqing, during which time he had a secret meeting with Zhou Enlai. Zhou was head of the Southern Bureau under CPC leadership, where he strived to empower the United Front, established communication with parties overseas, and raised international relations of the CPC to a whole new level.
