The education of the bereaved children of fallen revolutionaries in the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea began long ago, that is, during the anti-Japanese revolutionary struggle under the close care of President
During the years of the struggle, the bereaved children of revolutionary and patriotic martyrs, who had devoted themselves to the sacred revolutionary struggle for freedom and independence of the country and liberation of the people, were admitted into Children’s Corps schools and revolutionary organizations to be trained into revolutionaries.
After national liberation, a preparatory committee for establishment of a school for the bereaved children of fallen revolutionaries was organized in March Juche 36 (1947), which led to the establishment of Mangyongdae Revolutionary School, the first school for the bereaved children of fallen revolutionaries, was set up in the country.
In May Juche 41 (1952) according to Cabinet Decision No. 106 “On Measures to Improve the Operation of Schools and Orphanages for the Bereaved Children of Patriotic Martyrs”, the nurseries and other orphanages for bereaved children of patriotic martyrs were merged into orphanages while the orphans' primary schools and technical schools of orphaned girls were amalgamated into schools for the bereaved children of fallen revolutionaries.
Thus the education of the bereaved children of fallen revolutionaries was further expanded and reinforced during the period of the Fatherland Liberation War.
After the war, schools of the kind were built in several places including Nampho and Haeju.
Now there are such educational institutions for the bereaved children of fallen revolutionaries as Mangyongdae Revolutionary School, Kang Pan Sok Revolutionary School, Nampho Revolutionary School and Saenal Revolutionary School.
Under the wise leadership and warm care of the respected Comrade
