NDO/ VNA – Exhibitions marking 50 years of the Spring 1968 uprising and Vietnam’s economic, cultural, social and national defence achievements opened in the Mekong Delta city of Can Tho, on December 19.

More than 250 documents, photos and objects are on display at the Can Tho Museum, featuring the Mau Than Offensive in Spring 1968 and the uprising of soldiers and people from the Mekong Delta and Can Tho city in particular. These contributed to the victory of the Ho Chi Minh campaign in 1975, liberating the South and reunifying the nation.

The exhibits included soldiers’ watches, sandals and working instruments, such as binoculars and headphones, as well as an old sewing machine that made thousands of national flags that were sent to the battlefields.

The event aims to raise public awareness, especially among youths, of the sacrifice and endurance of the Vietnamese people for the sake of national independence.

Furthermore, a photo exhibition was held to introduce the economic, cultural, social and national defence achievements of the country and Can Tho city in particular since 1975.

On showcase were 120 file photos, many of them provided by the Vietnam News Agency.

The two events are open to the public until April 15, 2018.
