According to some sources, Jiang Zemin's father, Jiang Shixi was a traitor to the Japanese during the War of Resistance Against Japan (1937–1945) and subsequently fabricated his early family history, claiming to be the adopted son of a Communist Party martyr in order to climb the echelons of the Communist Party.
