More than 40 works help visitors learn more about the hard but glorious time and about the Vietnamese people and troops’ courageous fighting spirit during the war.

French correspondent Lady Borton, who joined the Anti-Vietnam War campaign, held that arriving in Vietnam in the fierce period of 1969-1973, she could witness locals’ suffering and losses caused by the war. Through these exhibited photos, she has further understood the war’s consequences to both sides.

Nguyen Thu Trang, a student of the Hanoi University, shared that her father used to be an engineer taking part in battlefields along the Truong Son trail. As touring the exhibition, she has now had a profound understanding of her father’s stories about the war.

On the sidelines of the event, authors will share the inspiration and moments that helped them make these works at a seminar “Battlefield correspondents: Cameras and Eyes”. The exhibition lasts till May 10th.
