NDO – An exhibition, entitled ‘Nhat ky hoa binh’ (Diary of Peace), officially opened at Hoa Lo Prison Historical Relic Sitein Hanoi on July 2.

The event is part of activities to mark Hanoi's UNESCO recognition as a City for Peace (July 16, 1999 – 2019).

The displayed photos, documents and artefacts, which are divided into three main parts, recall the Vietnamese people’s resistance war against the US imperialism for national independence during the 1954 – 1975 period.

The exhibition also highlights the solidarity among peace-loving people around the world who surpassed the geographical, linguistic, and religious distances to raise their voices against the American war in Vietnam.

Many stories were told by historical witnesses who were in charge of national activities as well as Vietnamese plenipotentiary ambassadors in foreign countries.

At the opening ceremony, many individuals presented various photos, documents and artifacts to the Management Board of Hoa Lo Prison Relic Site to serve for research purposes and to be put on display.

The exhibition will last until late 2019.

On the occasion, the organising board, in collaboration with several individuals and organisations, presented gifts to Agent Orange victims of Vietnam Friendship Village in Hoai Duc district, Hanoi.
