NDO – The War Remnants Museum in Ho Chi Minh City coordinated with Hai Phong Museum to organise an exhibition on Hai Phong in Ho Chi Minh City on April 15.
The event is part of activities to celebrate the 42nd anniversary of the Southern Liberation and National Reunification Day (April 30, 1975–2017); the 125th birthday of President Ho Chi Minh (May 19, 1890–2017) and the 62nd anniversary of the liberation of Hai Phong (May 13, 1955-2017).
The exhibition was divided into four major topics, including ‘President Ho Chi Minh and Hai Phong’; ‘Hai Phong – Target of American imperialism’; ‘Hai Phong – Fighting, overcoming the consequences of war, restoring production, supporting for the southern’; and ‘Hai Phong today’.
With over 200 photos and 70 artifacts, the exhibition provides visitors with a clear insight into Hai Phong, which is one of the cradles of the Vietnamese working class and was among the first localities nationwide to absorb Marxism-Leninism introduced to the country by Nguyen Ai Quoc (President Ho Chi Minh) during the struggle against foreign invaders.
Under the leadership of the Party and President Ho, the people and soldiers of Hai Phong stood steadfastly together with their peers across the country.
They contributed to the Dien Bien Phu victory that ended French domination of north Vietnam.
On May 13, 1955, Hai Phong was liberated from the French and started to build socialism and preparing logistics for the struggle towards the liberation of the southern region.
