President Truong Tan Sang on January 24 stressed the need for the country’s experienced citizens to set a greater moral example to the upcoming generations, following a visit to a museum dedicated to revolutionary prisoners in Hanoi’s Nam Quat village, Phu Xuyen district.

The special museum was built and managed by Lam Van Bang, a former prisoner in Phu Quoc jail in the southern province of Kien Giang from 1970 to 1973.

With more than 2,000 objects, photos and documents donated by former inmates, the museum recalls the different stories of former Phu Quoc prisoners of war.

President Sang said the courage and bravery of soldiers has always been an attribute of the Vietnamese people. He called on citizens to support the national political system to spur socio-economic development and improve people’s living standards.

He noted his high appreciation of the effort made by soldiers to open and manage the museum, and expressed his hope that it will run more exhibitions in the future so as to educate young generations about the country’s revolution.

He also suggested local authorities make it easier for the managers to expand the museum’s scale and diversify its activities.-VNA
