Henk Sneevliet (known as Maring in China) is not only a social activist and antifascist in the Netherlands but also one of the Chinese friends in the modern Chinese history. Between 1921 and 1923, Henk Sneevliet had been to china three times, including Guangzhou twice, and took part in the First & Third National Congress of the Communist Party of China and made an important contribution in the promotion of the Chinese Revolution.

For the exhibition, IISG in the Netherlands contributes 113 exhibits (among which, 46 are original precious files and historical documents).
