People in the capital city of Hanoi will have a chance to re-live the heroic atmosphere of the war against the US invaders when they attend an exhibition titled “Hanoi – days and nights in 1972” which will open on October 11.

The exhibition will recall the most memorable moments in 1972 - the year that led to the end of the war between Vietnam and the US - with what Hanoians had experienced.

Initiated by the French School of Far East Studies and the French Embassy in Vietnam, the exhibition marks 40th anniversary of the US bombing of the French representative office in Hanoi.

From the US bombing campaign on North Vietnam in 1972 to the signing of the Paris Accord on January 27, 1973, the exhibition re-creates the lives of Hanoians and the tragic fate of thousands of civilians killed and injured during the US war.

The organisers said documentary films and photos and documents on display come from different sources, both in Vietnam and France, including the Vietnam News Agency, the Air and Air Defence Museum of Vietnam, the National Audio-Visual Insitute of France, the La Courneuve Library, as well as several individuals such as Chu Chi Thanh, Hean-Marc Gravier, Alain Wasmes and Nicolas Cornet.

During the exhibition, a seminar entitled “1972 – the key year for solving the Vietnam-US conflict” will be held./.
