HCM CITY — A book series featuring publications written by President Hồ Chí Minh has been released to celebrate National Day on September 2 and the 13th National Congress of the Communist Party of Việt Nam.
Published by the Trẻ Publishing House, Hồ Chí Minh - Tác Phẩm Bảo Vật Quốc Gia (President Hồ Chí Minh’s Literary Works - National Treasure) consists of five books in pocket size of 9 cm x 12,5 cm.
Each book includes copies of handwritten pieces and photos of the President.
Among the books is Đường Kách Mệnh (The Revolutionary Path), a book of lectures by Nguyễn Ái Quốc for training courses for staff of the Vietnamese Revolutionary Youth League, held in Guangzhou, China between 1925 and 1927.
The book is printed according to the original version published in 1927 with 98 handwritten pages.
Another book is Nhật Ký Trong Tù (Diary in Prison) featuring the original version of a collection of 133 poets written in 1942-1943 with Vietnamese translation by the Việt Nam Institute of Literature.
The two other books focus on President Hồ Chí Minh’s call urging the entire people of Việt Nam to resist French colonial rule in 1946, and his appeals for national resistance against the US in 1966.
The books also include photos of the President at that time, as well as QR codes for the audio versions of the President's messages.
The last book features President Hồ Chí Minh’s testament. The book is printed in colour to highlight hand-written drafts of the testament in 1965, 1968 and 1969.
Phan Thị Thu Hà, deputy director of the Trẻ Publishing House, said: “We have worked hard for 21 years to bring readers President Hồ Chí Minh’s legacy in an easy and understandable way.”
“Hồ Chí Minh - Tác Phẩm Bảo Vật Quốc Gia includes iconic publications carrying important ideology which the President left to the Vietnamese people,” said Hà.
