The shows recalled memories of the communist prisoners 40 years ago and honored their resilient spirit and readiness to sacrifice for their country.

The program was meant to be a tribute to martyrs and wounded soldiers, and for providing exchanges with historical witnesses during wartime.

Phu Quoc prison detained nearly 40,000 revolutionary prisoners and more than 4,000 of them sacrificed their lives for the fatherland during the resistance against the French and Vietnam War.

The show was organized by Ho Chi Minh City Television in cooperation of ANTV channel.
