“This is my last journey to complete my photo collection”, he said. “ I will choose excellent photos out of 300,000 for a photo exhibition on war and a book to bring to people in the world a clear understanding of the war.”

In March, 2005, Tel Engelmann heard of Vietnamese Martyr Dang  Thuy Tram’s diary at a seminar on Viet Nam’s war held in the U.S.

Later, he met the Frederic brothers in order to help forward the CD talking about the diary to her family in Viet Nam.

Thanks to his help, the diary was returned to Viet Nam after more than 30 years in the U.S.
