HÀ NỘI — More than 150 artefacts and documents related to Việt Nam’s August Revolution and National Day are being displayed at an exhibition at the National Museum of Vietnamese History in Hà Nội.
Speaking at the opening ceremony on Tuesday, Director of the museum Nguyễn Văn Đoàn, said that the Independence day-2nd of September exhibition aims to help the public, particularly young people, better understanding a historical milestone of the nation – the August Revolution of 1945, as well as the strength of national solidarity and the value of independence and freedom.
“The heroic days of August 1945 will always be a shining milestone in national history and leave a very valuable lesson for the Vietnamese revolution.
"Continuing the tradition of patriotism, promoting the spirit of the August Revolution and under the leadership of the Party, Vietnamese people have overcome all difficulties to defeat all invasions, defend national independence and conduct the cause of renewal and development of the country,” Đoàn said.
