HCM CITY – An exhibition titled Nhân Đạo (Humanitarian Spirit) has opened at the War Remnant Museum in HCM City.
The event, organised by the museum in collaboration with the Việt Nam People’s Army Logistics Museum, showcases 87 photos, documents and objects.
Photos and documents show the attack of the US Air Force and Navy on northern Việt Nam from August 1964 to December 1972.
It also reveals the overview of life of imprisoned American pilots during their detention in Việt Nam, and the release of American war prisoners at Gia Lâm Airport in Hà Nội in 1973.
Photos featuring the formal normalisation of diplomatic relations between the US and Việt Nam are on display as well.
Huỳnh Ngọc Vân, director the War Remnants Museum, said: “The exhibition is a chance for both local and foreign visitors to understand the humane spirit of the Party, Government, military and people of Việt Nam during the war and today.”
“On display are photos and objects that will teach younger generations about the Vietnamese tradition of humanitarian efforts, as well as send a message of peace and friendship of Vietnamese people to the world.”
The exhibition remains open until May 31 at 28 Võ Văn Tần Street in District 1. VNS
