The exhibits also feature exemplary models who stood out in following Uncle Ho’s teaching and contributing to the nation’s patriotic movements.

The exhibition is co-hosted by the General Department of Politics under the Vietnam People's Army and the Military Library to help visitors and soldiers develop a deeper understanding of the ideology and career of beloved President Ho, thus encouraging them to follow Uncle Ho’s example.

A seminar on President Ho Chi Minh’s thought and the Vietnamese People’s Army was also held on the same day, featuring a presentation by Prof. Dr Hoang Chi Bao, member of the Party Central Committee's Theoretical Council.

The exhibition will run until May 15th at the Military Library, 83 Ly Nam De Street, Hoan Kiem district.

President Ho Chi Minh was born on May 19th, 1890 in Kim Lien Commune, Nam Dan District, the central province of Nghe An.

He devoted his life to the national liberation cause, while tirelessly striving for peace and progress in the world. He also led the nation to success in the struggle for national independence and establishing the Democratic Republic of Vietnam following the August Revolution in 1945. The president passed away in 1969.

Resolution 18.65, adopted by the 24th General Conference of UNESCO in 1987, recognised that President Ho Chi Minh devoted all his life to the struggle for national liberation of the Vietnamese people, contributing to the common struggle of peoples for peace, national independence, democracy and social progress.

He is the national liberation hero and an outstanding symbol of cultural excellence. He left for the Vietnamese people an invaluable heritage, which is Ho Chi Minh Thought, not only about the Vietnamese revolutionary ideals, but also the vitally important role of education and culture for peace and development./.
