Changshu City (Suzhou)
Changshu is a county-level city under the jurisdiction of Suzhou Prefecture City, about 50 and 100 km far from the metropolises of Suzhou and Shanghai. In Chinese, Chang means “frequent and always” and Shu expresses “harvest”.
Changshu was first named as an independent town in 540 A.D. and later was subordinated to Suzhou’ jurisdiction. Traditionally, it was a market town popular for trades of agricultural products and was enriched with its agricultural civilization.
Changshu became even more popular in the 1960s to 70s after a traditional Peking Opera, Sha Jia Bang, which was a small township of Changshu, was played on theatre stages during a chaotic time, the Cultural Revolution. The opera since then became so popular that people watched it again and again while there was actually nothing else to watch in the political chaos. The story vividly depicted a scene, happened in China’s Anti-Japanese war, in which local residents helped a group of wounded anti-Japanese guerrilla in this lake-surrounded town full with reed marshes.
