Lee Meng honours martyrs of anti-fascist war

One of the first places Lee Meng visited in her tanah tumpah darah was the 9/1 Martyrs' Monument at the Nilai Memorial Park where she saluted and paid tribute to her fallen comrades in the anti-fascist war of 1941-1945. Having joined the Communist Party of Malaya (CPM) in Ipoh in 1942 at the age of 16, Lee Meng led the underground party's Ipoh area committee as its secretary during the Occupation. According to Lee Meng, her mother was once arrested and tortured by the Japanese military police for protecting anti-fascist partisans.
