Historical place serves as base for education in spirit of anti-Japanese fighters
The Madusan Revolutionary Battle Site is located in the area of Anju, South Phyongan Province of the DPRK. At the site there is the Madusan Secret Camp.
In the period of the anti-Japanese armed struggle (1932-1945), this camp was built in Mt Madu as one of the secret camps forming the Anju Area Secret Base, which served as a base for regional leadership and an important base for military operation in the western part of Korea.
The headquarters of the revolution was to be lcoated at the Anju Area Secret Base in the period of operation for the final attack to liberate Korea.
President Kim Il Sung set forth a line of accomplishing the historic cause of national liberation through a general offensive of the Korean People's Revolutionary Army (KPRA) combined with all-people uprising and joint operations behind enemy lines and gave a task to build new secret bases in the homeland as part of the work for implementing the line.
Under his operational plan, a small unit of the KPRA built several secret camps, including the Madusan Secret Camp, in the Anju area and formed underground revolutionary organizations to build a revolutionary fortress for preparing an all-people resistance and an operation for the final attack.
In the Madusan Secret Camp there are 51 trees bearing slogans written by members of the KPRA. Among them are “Keep the revolutionary faith to the death”and "Fight death-defyingly for our country and nation" which show the noble mental spirit of the anti-Japanese revolutionary forerunners.
When visiting the Madusan Revolutionary Battle Site in January 2014, Supreme Leader Kim Jong Un said the area of Anju where the revolutionary battle site is located was an important operational area for greeting the great event of national liberation, adding that President Kim Il Sung chose the area for a secret base and this fact proves that he was a peerlessly great man possessed of far-sighted wisdom.
