“To French people, President Ho Chi Minh is a symbol of the struggle for national independence and freedom; peace and social progress,” asserted Montreuil Mayor Jean-Pierre Brard.
A number of original documents currently published in France such as newspapers, magazines, photos, and research on President Ho Chi Minh and Viet Nam published in France are displayed. Also, several objects and images from the president’s visit to France from May to Oct of 1946 were displayed for the first time.
The exhibition aims to show Viet Nam and France’s historical relations and the Vietnamese-French friendship.
