  History always gives people profound enlightenment at some special moments.

  On the morning of March 23, 1949, Chairman Mao Zedong led the central authority to leave Xibaipo and set off for Beiping. His words before leaving were meaningful: "Today is the day to enter Beijing to rush the exam."

  In July 2013, General Secretary Xi Jinping came to Xibaipo when the first centralized education within the party after the 18th National Congress of the Communist Party of China-the party's mass line education practice activities were carried out.

In the memorial hall, the general secretary contemplated for a long time: "The'rush exam' facing the party is far from over."

Increasing trust by reasoning——Explain the inner logic and profound enlightenment of a century of party history, and further strengthen the "four self-confidence"

  On the east side of Tiananmen Square, the National Museum of China stands tall.

  Stepping into the basic exhibition hall of "Road to Rejuvenation", the history is full of smoke.

  "Now everyone is discussing the Chinese dream. I think that realizing the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation is the greatest dream of the Chinese nation in modern times."

  On November 29, 2012, Comrade Xi Jinping, who was elected as General Secretary of the Communist Party Central Committee for only 15 days, led the 18th Politburo Standing Committee of the Communist Party of China to here, and solemnly declared.

  It is precisely a century of grace to have a great career in the future.

  General Secretary Xi Jinping has always looked at and grasped the history of the party with a grand view of history, and has always connected it with the history of New China, the history of reform and opening up, and the history of socialist development to study and think.

  The General Secretary profoundly pointed out: "The history of the Communist Party of China is the most evocative chapter in the history of China in modern times." The establishment of the Communist Party of China, the founding of the People's Republic of China, and the promotion of reform and opening up and the cause of socialism with Chinese characteristics are "the realization of the great rejuvenation of the Chinese nation in modern times. The three major milestones of ".

  Learning from history, opening the red chapter of a century of turmoil, General Secretary Xi Jinping profoundly revealed the consistent inevitable logic behind the cloud of history.

  When visiting the "Road to Revival" exhibition, General Secretary Xi Jinping vividly described the "smell of truth".

  "One day, a young man was struggling to write a book at home, and his mother shouted outside:'You want to add brown sugar water to eat rice dumplings, have you eaten it?' He said,'I have eaten it, it's very sweet.' The old lady walked in. At first glance, this young man was immersed in writing a book, his mouth was full of black ink." Pointing to the Chinese translation of the Communist Manifesto in the showcase, the general secretary said, "Who is this person? Chen Wangdao, who wrote this book. "

  Five years later, only a week after the closing of the 19th National Congress of the Communist Party of China, General Secretary Xi Jinping led the new Politburo Standing Committee to Shanghai and Jiaxing, Zhejiang.

At the site of the first meeting of the Communist Party of China, the general secretary once again told the story of this pamphlet.

  In front of the lecture hall, the general secretary held an umbrella and looked at the "seeking truth from facts" plaque on the eaves, contemplating for a long time.

  "Chairman Mao was nurtured here back then, and seeking truth from facts came from here. How can the Communist Party succeed? Back then, there was a boat on Nanhu in Shikumen, with a dozen people, and this is the way it is today. It must be clear and the truth must be localized."

  Only by looking back at the party’s history can we have a deeper understanding of how difficult it is to find a correct path.

  Over the past century, the Communist Party of China has been insisting on emancipating the mind, seeking truth from facts, advancing with the times, seeking truth and being pragmatic, and combining the basic principles of Marxism with China's specific reality.

  In November 1934, three female soldiers of the Red Army who passed through Shazhou Village, Rucheng County, Hunan Province lived in the home of Xu Jiexiu, a villager. Before leaving, she cut off the only quilt in half and left it with her.

  In October 2016, at the meeting to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the victory of the Red Army’s Long March, General Secretary Xi Jinping talked about this history, “When I was speaking at the time, I was deeply moved.”

  Four years later, in the autumn, General Secretary Xi Jinping went to Hunan for inspection.
