Cho was born in Kangsŏ-gun, South P'yŏngan Province, now in North Korea. In his youth he was an activist within Korea's Christian community,[1] but from 1910 with
Japan's annexation of Korea he became increasingly involved with his country's independence movement. His participation in the 1919 Sam-Il protest marches led to his
arrest and detention, along with tens of thousands of other Koreans. After his release, he dedicated himself to non-violent resistance to the occupation, a stance which
earned him the epithet "The Gandhi of Korea".[2] He advocated a principal of self-sufficiency for the nation, and formed a number of commercial enterprises intended to
encourage Koreans to buy home-produced goods and so instil a sense of nationalism.

Activism post World War II
In August 1945, with Japanese surrender imminent, Cho was approached by the Japanese governor of Pyongyang and asked to organise a committee to maintain stability
in the power vacuum that would inevitably follow.[1] He agreed to co-operate, and formed governing councils throughout the north; they generally being composed of
right-wing nationalists opposed to communism.[3] The Soviet Union arrived in Pyongyang in the days following the Japanese surrender, bringing with them the Korean
communist Kim Il-sung, who had trained in the Soviet army for ten years, rising to the rank of captain. Under Soviet pressure, Cho was obliged to reorganise his party,
and accept more communists onto the councils.[4] Unsurprisingly, the opposing ideologies of Kim and Cho led to a clash between the two men, and the forced power-
sharing failed to sit well with either of them.

The 1945 Moscow Conference between the victorious Allied powers discussed the statehood of Korea, proposing a four-power trusteeship for a period of five years,
after which Korea would become an independent state. For Cho, this would result in excessive foreign, and particularly communist, influence over his country, and he
refused to co-operate.[5] In early 1946 he was forced to resign from his position, and was placed under house arrest by the Soviets. For some time he was kept under
comfortable conditions at the Koryo Hotel, from which position he continued to vocally oppose the communists. Later transferred to a prison in Pyongyang, he was
executed on 15 October 1950, shortly before the city was captured by UN forces during the Korean War. Cho's removal opened the way for Kim Il-sung to consolidate his
power in the north, a position he was able to hold for 48 years until his death in 1994.

In 1970, Cho's deeds gained posthumous recognition when he was awarded the Order of Merit for National Foundation and the Republic of Korea medal by the South
Korean government.
