HÀ NỘI — The Việt Nam Military History Museum is displaying more than 200 materials, images and objects featuring Hồ Chí Minh's personality and his testament as a guideline for the Central Party and people during the American war and later in the process of developing the country.
At the opening ceremony of the event dubbed “Uncle Hồ’s Testament – a Guiding Light Source”, Lieutenant Colonel Mai Thị Ngọc, director of the museum, said President Hồ Chí Minh – a hero liberating his people, a world figure and the initiator of Việt Nam Central Party – left behind a historic testament to the Central Party and the people.
“The testament is the quintessence of the ideology, morality and noble mind of a great figure who sacrificed for his country and all the people in the world,” she stressed.
“The testament reflects his will, feelings, belief, wisdom and responsibility to the nation and people and the revolutionary cause,” she added.
“The testament is also a huge theoretical work on building and strengthening the ruling Party,” she said. “It discusses building socialism in Việt Nam and drafts renovation cause.”
The exhibition is divided into three parts. The first part features the biography and career of President Hồ Chí Minh.
His poor homeland in Nghệ An Province and Nhà Rồng Wharf, where Hồ Chí Minh (then called Nguyễn Tất Thành) set foot on a boat to go abroad to seek a way to liberate the country from colonialism, are the highlights of this part.
The second part focused on his testament traces back the situation when he wrote the document and the determination of the Central Party, people and army to learn and implement the President’s will to fight against enemies, liberating and uniting the whole country. This section reviews the advancements of the Việt Nam People’s Army in the cause of building and protecting the Việt Nam socialist fatherland.
The final part under the title “Forever Bright the Quality of Uncle Hồ’s Soldiers” introduces innovations of individuals and collectives in various facets of the army during the past five years of learning and following the ideology, morality and style of Hồ Chí Minh.
The exhibition will be run at the museum at 28A Điện Biên Phủ Street, Ba Đình District, Hà Nội until September 10. — VNS
