The three-part exhibition, which was inspired by the solemn oath of Hanoi’s armed forces and people to fight to the death in the last days of 1946 to protect the capital city, was among the activities to mark the 75th anniversary of National Resistance Day (December 19, 1946-2021).
Through the exhibits, viewers can learn more about the fierce days and nights of Hanoi armed forces and people to protect the liberation of the capital city.
People who directly fight and sacrificed their lives during the 60 fierce days and nights (1946-1947) became a symbol of the immortal spirit of the capital city.

In the face of “enemies of hunger, ignorance and invasion”, the Government of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam, led by President Ho Chi Minh, conducted many measures to gradually repel the difficulties in socioeconomics and build the internal strength of the country.
Vietnamese Government tried to implement strategies to avoid many enemies at the same time, especially the military conflicts. However, the last efforts made by Vietnamese Government to protect the fragile peace of the nation could not hold for long. The war broke out and Vietnamese people were forced to fight so that a nationwide resistance war was launched to protect the national independence.
On the night of December 19, 1946, in response to “the Call for National Resistance” of President Ho Chi Minh, the Hanoi army and people stood up with the spirit of fighting to the death for the nation, resulting in 60 fierce days and nights of the resistance war.
Following nine years of the long-term resistance, the triumphant Vietnamese army arrived in Hanoi to take over the capital city from the colonial French rulers.
