Photos of late General Vo Nguyen Giap on display

An exhibition, which opened in Hanoi on January 1, displays 103 photos of legendary General Vo Nguyen Giap to mark his 100-day death anniversary.

The week-long event, entitled “Honouring Chief Commander Vo Nguyen Giap”, is being jointly held by the Vietnam Historical Science Association, the Association of Quang Binh Fellow Countrymen, Viet Culture Development Company JSC, and some other social associations.

It aims to highlight the huge contribution of the national hero, inspire patriotism, and serve as a great source of pride for young generations.

Former Deputy Minister of Culture and Information (now the Ministry of Information and Communications) Pham Khac Hai, who is also Chairman of the Quang Binh Association of Fellow Countrymen, said the display photos have been selected from thousands of photos on General Giap’s daily life and work, as well as his historic achievements. 

General Giap passed away at the age of 103 and rests in peace in his hometown - Vung Chua, Le Thuy District, the central province of Quang Binh.
