The event was part of activities to mark Vietnam Women’s Day and celebrate the 90th founding anniversary of the Vietnam Women’s Union (October 20, 1930-2020).
The programme consists of three main activities including an exhibition themed “Mother”, a ceremony to grant artifacts of former soldiers and a signing ceremony marking the cooperation agreement between Vietnam Women’s Museum and the “Soldier’ Heart” Club.
The exhibition “Mother” displays 90 photos on Vietnamese mothers across the country taken by journalist and photographer Tran Hong.
Divided into three main parts, the exhibits highlight the beauty, efforts and happiness of Vietnamese mothers across different generations.
On the occasion, the Vietnamese Women’s Museum held a ceremony to receive documents and artifacts, such as diaries, photos, postcards, handwritten letters and personal belongings, from former soldiers or relatives of fallen soldiers.
These artifacts will recall the youth of people who devoted their lives to the national revolution.
The signing of the cooperation agreement between the Museum and the “Soldier’s Heart” Club is expected to contribute to the collection of meaningful and valuable stories and material documenting both war and peace.
The Soldier’s Heart Club is a forum on facebook formed by Veteran Writer, Colonel Dang Vuong Hung, aiming to taking full advantage of the social network to collect and preserve artefacts and human values related to the history and tradition of all veterans.
