HA NOI  (VNS)– A picture book showing powerful images of Vietnamese children smiling despite the suffering caused by the war around them will be released to mark National Day on Monday.

Entitled Tre Em Thoi Chien (Children at War), the book depicts the life of children during the American War through nearly 100 photos taken by photo journalists from Vietnam News Agency, Thieu Nien Tien Phong (Young Pioneers) newspaper and Japan-based Nihon Denpa News.

The photos were previously displayed in Ha Noi and HCM City and drew much attention. Young visitors were able to understand how hard their parents had lived and studied during the cruel war.

Many children had to live far from their families. After school time, they often had to dig tunnels, weave straw hats to protect people from bomb fragments and make bread. Besides books, they always carried first-aid kits to school.

The book is distributed by the Kim Dong Publishing House and costs VND150,000 (US$7). – VNS
