An exhibition portraying patriots kept at Con Dao prison dubbed “A hell on earth”, will open on November 22 in Con Dao district of the southern coastal province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau.

Some 100 documents are divided into four sections, namely the history of Con Dao, Con Dao prison, some of the island’s lords and images of thousands of patriots spending their lives in the prison.

The exhibition also aims to increase awareness of the role the sea and islands have in the country’s security, national defence and development.

It will run until April 30 next year.-VNA
