More than 200 items and 54 images illustrating stories on female soldiers during the war are being put on show at an exhibition that opened in Ho Chi Minh City on October 15.

Those are belongings of female soldiers who took a direct part in the war or the keepsakes they handed to their family members or relatives before going into battle and laid down their lives.

Stories behind the items will help visitors learn about the lives of those who rendered services to Vietnam ’s struggle for its independence and liberation.

The exhibition, co-organised by the Southern Women’s Museum in HCM City and the Museum of Mekong Delta Ben Tre province, will run until January 15, 2014.-VNA
