To many Chinese, March the 5th is the annual occasion to commemorate a young soldier, Lei Feng, an iconic figure who has influenced Chinese people for half a century. Selflessness, modesty and dedication -- those are the qualities attributed to Lei Feng, and even today, youngsters are still encouraged to follow his example. We head now to an exhibition in Beijing and find out more about this legendary Good Samaritan.
Portraits, military badges and old photos. These are among the more than 800 items to be seen here.
Also on display are poems and words of tribute by late Chinese leaders such as Mao Zedong and Liu Shaoqi.
All of it was provided by Dong Xingxi. He's an avid collector of memorabilia related to China's larger-than-life cultural figure, Lei Feng.
