Show tells story of Dien Bien Phu

Show tells story of Dien Bien Phu An exhibition focusing on the logistics work that led to the Dien Bien Phu Victory opened at the Vietnam Revolution Museum on May 5.

“We focuses on talking about the logistic work during the campaign at the exhibit because it’s one of the important elements that contributed to that great success on May 7, 1954,” said Trieu Van Hien, the museum’s director.

Inhabitants throughout the country were ready to contribute everything they had, including- food and medicine, to serve the soldiers on the front and answer the call of President Ho Chi Minh. “All for the battlefront, all for the victory”, said the director. Event after nine years of arduous resistance, the Dien Bien Phu campaign remained the country’s most famous mobilization effort.

Visitors to the show can view original documents like a map of the Dien Bien Phu Valley and the order signed by General Vo Nguyen Giap sent to the Vietnam People’s Army during the campaign. The show also has a wide range of objects and images on display featuring logistics work for the campaign like bicycles used to transport supplies for Vietnamese forces to fight French troops.

Books written by General Giap about this great victory are also on display. Images of modern Dien Bien Phu City show the location as an attractive historic destination for both domestic and foreign visitors.

On May 9, to celebrate Museum Day, the museum will be open (free of charge) to all visitors. The museum will also host discussions with veterans who took part in the campaign.

The exhibition is part of the programme to celebrate the 55th anniversary of the Dien Bien Phu Victory over French colonialists on May 7. The show will run through June 5 at the Vietnam Revolution Museum located at 25 Tong Dan St, Hanoi.

At the Vietnam Military History Museum, located at 25A Dien Bien Phu St, 30 objects and 40 photos from the Dong Xuan (Winter-Spring) campaign (1953-1954) and Dien Bien Phu Victory are also on display through the end of May. (Source: VNA)
