Exhibition marks Hanoi’s liberation celebrations in 1954Thursday, October 4,2018
AsemconnectVietnam - Photos and documents capturing the glorious moments of Hanoi’s celebrations of Liberation Day on October 10, 1954 are on display at the Imperial Citadel of Thang Long in downtown Hanoi.
The exhibition, “Hanoi: Moments of October 1954”, was launched on October 3 to celebrate the 64th anniversary of the capital city’s liberation.
Its photos and stories tell visitors about the triumphant Vietnamese army arriving to take over the capital city from colonial French rulers; the flag salute ceremony at Cot Co stadium to celebrate Hanoi’s victory on October 10, 1954; the withdrawal of the French troops from Hanoi; the thousands of Hanoians that shared a cheerful moment over the victory; and memories of people on the historic day.
Visitors can read stories told by Capital Regiment fighters and Hanoi’s residents who witnessed the victorious moment. They include Colonel Nguyen Trong Ham and soldier Phung De who served in the Capital Regiment, songwriter Nguyen Van Quy, as well as well-known historians Le Van Lan and Duong Trung Quoc.
Historian Duong Trung Quoc recalled the exciting atmosphere in every corner of the capital on October 10 more than six decades ago. Many local families made flags themselves to greet the Vietnamese troops.
The exhibition will run through until October 31.
