The Second World War and the destruction it inflicted triggered an alliance of medical teams all across Europe. Within this context, they also set up International Committee for Aid to China and sent dozens of medical staff to Tuyunguan in Guizhou province.

3,000 of them, including the Chinese and non-Chinese stationed in this point. 64 of them died here in the name of whom a monument has been erected.

In order for this unique memory to live on, Guiyang officials are now making fervent efforts to set up in Tuyunguan a replica of what it once used to be, a secluded World War II sanitarium that provided battlefield medical service in a Red Cross spirit.
