NDO – A special exhibition opened at Hoa Lo Prison Memorial in Hanoi on January 10 to mark the 90th anniversary of the founding of the Communist Party of Vietnam (February 3, 1930-2020).

Entitled "Lighting the fire of faith", exhibits and artefacts at the event introduce the birth of the Party, which is considered a great turning point in the nation's history, leading to the August Revolution in 1945 that gave birth to the Democratic Republic of Vietnam and two great victories over the French colonialists (1946-1954) and anti-American imperialism (1954-1975).

At the opening of the exhibition, which will run until February 29, historical witnesses brought to the public their emotional stories about their pride in being members of the Communist Party of Vietnam.

A range of memorabilia connected to the leaders of the Party and State and loyal Party members who were imprisoned by the enemies in colonial and imperial prisons have been introduced to the public for the first time.

Also on January 10, the local authorities in Thai Nguyen Province held a ceremony to celebrate the 90th anniversary of the Party's founding and to summarise the implementation of the political task and patriotic emulation movement by the Thai Nguyen Provincial Party Committee in 2019.
