On the occasion of the 72nd anniversary of the National Resistance Day (December 19, 1946-2018), the Hanoi Library (at No.47, Ba Trieu) kicked off an exhibition named “Living Forever with the Capital” on December 18, with the aim of presenting nearly 200 documents, photographs and artifacts featuring Hanoi and its people during the resistance to the French.
The exhibition "Living Forever with the Capital" provides opportunity for audiences to learn more about the heroic history of the Vietnamese people, especially Hanoians during 60 days and nights fighting the enemy in the city.
At the same time, the organizing board hoped that the event will contribute to spreading the heroic spirit of the past struggle for national independence and freedom to people from all walks of life.
The exhibition is organized into four main themes: The Party's and President Ho Chi Minh's Directions in the Resistance Against the French Colonialists"; "The Resistance Against the French of the Vietnamese People"; "Hanoi Starting the Nationwide Resistance, "" Hanoi - Capital of Heroism and Peace ".
The organizing board also used books to set up a copy of the Turtle Tower, a symbol of Hanoi and a copy of the Northern Administration Building, where the Provisional Government of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam worked from the August Revolution to the National Resistance Day.
The exhibition will last until December 24.
