NDO – The Hanoi Department of Culture and Sports has received relics from the house where President Ho Chi Minh lived and worked in December 1946 in Van Phuc ward, Ha Dong district.

The relics were presented by the People’s Committee of Van Phuc ward and the Van Phuc Silk Weaving Village Association.

The artifact, donated by the People’s Committee of Van Phuc ward, include the traditional loom of Van Phuc silk village and the silk display cabinet of the family of Mr. Nguyen Van Duong, the previous owner of the house. These are typical artifacts preserved by officials and people of Van Phuc ward over the years.

These artifacts will be added to an exhibition entitled “Weaving silk space” held as part of the activities to mark the 75th anniversary of National Resistance Day (December 19, 1946-2021).
