More than half a century ago, the United States (US) sent tens of millions of soldiers and millions of tonnes of bombs and ammunition to Vietnam. This unjust war was opposed by peace-loving people around the world. In many countries, this opposition took many forms, including conferences, protests as well as propaganda publications such as newspapers, posters, leaflets, and donated money. In the US, organisations and individuals stood up to protest the war. Some women, whose sons and husbands fought in the war, hoped their loved ones would come home soon.
The stories and artifacts introduced in this exhibition reflect peace. The support of people from all over the world created such strength and motivation for Vietnamese people to win the war so our country was unified. More than half a century has passed, yet the solidarity and sincere help of these supporters of Vietnam still touches the hearts of all Vietnamese people.
We will forever respect and be grateful for the hearts of peace of our international friends!
