Description

The Song Sisters 宋姐妹 Part II Temporary reconciliation and division

The period in the life of the Song sisters that will be best remembered will be the period of their reconciliation, at the time of the total Japanese war on China in 1937, also the time of the second united front. Beyond their differences, the remaining image of the Song sisters will be that of three patriotic sisters attracting the attention of the free world for the courageous struggle of China against Japanese aggression. After the establishment of the People’s Republic of China in October 1949, Song Qingling held different official position in the new regime. Song Meiling followed her husband in Taiwan. Song Ailing and her husband moved to the United States in 1948. The Song Sisters were then divided by the stream of history.
