Appendix 1: The Down to the Countryside Movement During the Cultural Revolution - The Shanghai Local Records Office
1. One million high school and middle school students are sent-down
Two years into the Cultural Revolution, the students who should have
graduated in 1966 and 1967 were still in school. Beginning in 1968,
the city began to allocate these students.
On July 2, 1968, the city’s Revolutionary Committee held a “City of
Shanghai Convention For Sending the Class of 1966 Down to the
Countryside.” The records of the time show that there were 149,669
students who were to have graduated from middle school in 1966, and
30,970 students who were to have graduated from high school. On July
8, the city established an office of the Down to the Countryside
movement (which came under control of the Revolutionary Committee in
September). Each district, street, and town followed suit, and they
began to mobilize “educated youth” to go to the countryside en masse.
On July 27, the first group of Red Guards left Shanghai for villages
in neighboring Anhui province. On August 9, the first group to go to
Heilongjiang province left. There were about 445,000 students in these
two graduating classes, and over 220,000 were sent to the countryside.
But the 1966 and 1967 graduating classes were still under the “Four
Directions” policy, and many entered industrial work.
When we visited Cardinal O'Hara today, we saw this picture. Along one hallway, they have every graduating class since they opened. My mom immediately found my dad, but couldn’t find herself. I found her when I looked at this picture again before posting. How sweet that my mom immediately saw her high school (and lifelong) sweetheart.❤️❤️
