Exhibitions on the history of central Quang Ngai province were launched on March 23 to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the locality’s liberation (March 24, 1975 – March 24, 2015).

An exhibition on the province’s 21-year struggle against the United States showcases around 200 photos, documents and objects representing the milestones and victories as well as sacrifices and losses of locals during the war.

Meanwhile, a collection of 2,500 books has been on display in Pham Van Dong Square, Quang Ngai City to present four decades of provincial rebuilding and development.

The books offer insight into the history of the local Communist Party Committe, geography of the province and its districts over time, outstanding community members and rebuilding and socio-economic development during the period.

The same day, Student Week was kicked off in several local museums, including the provincial General Museum, Ba To Museum, Van Tuong Museum and late Prime Minister Pham Van Dong’s Memorial House to welcome local pupils and students who wish to learn about their roots.

Some 5,000 pupils and students are expected to turn out for the week-long event running from March 23-30.-VNA
