Zheng Pingru

Zheng Pingru
1914—February 1940

Zheng Pingru, a native of Lanxi, Zhejiang Province, was known as a heroine in the Anti-Japanese War.

She was a beautiful young lady of note at a blossom age with charming appearance and personality in Shanghai at that period of time and was ever taken as the cover girl of Good Friends, the most famous pictorial in Shanghai at that time. She not only had beautiful outward appearance and brilliant wisdom, but also held strong patriotic enthusiasm for the country. After the outbreak of the Anti-Japanese War, she resolutely joined the anti-Japanese national salvation movement. When she was 23 years old, Shanghai was occupied by the Japanese and she joined the Central Investigation and Statistics Bureau. She took advantage of the Japanese nationality of her mother and making use of her fluent Japanese language skills to infiltrate into the senior officers and carders of Imperial Japanese Army to collect intelligence and became an excellent intelligencer. Unfortunately, her real identity was exposed when she joined the mission to assassinate Ding Mocun, the spy chief of Wang Jingwei’s puppet government. After being arrested, she insisted that she was crossed in love, so she hired the assassinator to kill Ding Mocun, which became one of the biggest box news in Shanghai that year. On February 1940, she was killed secretly in a bare field by the Zhongshan Road, West of Shanghai. She died for her country at the mere age of 26.
