NDO – An exhibition, entitled ‘Civilian workers during Dien Bien Phu Campaign’, officially opened at the Vietnam Military History Museum in Hanoi on April 25.

Deputy Prime Minister Vu Duc Dam joined the ribbon cutting ceremony to open the exhibition.

On display are over 300 documents and artefacts highlighting the contributions of thousands of civilian workers from all regions of the country to the campaign, thereby helping to ensure the historic Dien Bien Phu Victory (May 7, 1954).

Despite the harsh natural conditions in the northwest region, the civilian workers created many unique transport methods and made full use of transport means to timely bring ammunition, food and necessities to the soldiers on the front line.

The exhibition is divided into an introduction and three main parts, including the first introducing the policies of the Party Central Committee and President Ho Chi Minh on mobilising all officials, soldiers, civilian workers and youth volunteers to overcome all difficulties to gain success during the campaign.

The second part reflects the 56 days and nights of Dien Bien Phu campaign, highlighting the Vietnamese military forces’ heroic struggle to destroy the entire group of fortresses of the French colonialists in the locality.

Lastly, images of Dien Bien Phu city today, as well as the civilian workers’ contributors to the development of the city in particular and the nation in general are introduced to visitors.
