Exhibition recalls the days and nights of Hanoi’s 1972


(VOV) – A photo exhibition themed around “Hanoi’s Days and Nights in 1972” will be held from October 11-November 9 at the French Cultural Centre in Hanoi.

The event, organised by the French Institute of Oriental Studies’ Professor Olivier Tessier, will showcase images of Hanoi taken during the 1972 US B52 aerial bombardment of the city.

The exhibition thoroughly details the campaign, introducing each stage of the battle based on a timeline including targets and strategies, air force statistics, materiel and human losses, and the eventual negotiation process.

Dr Olivier Tessier, one of the leading researchers on the Thang Long Royal Palace, was honoured with the 2012 “Bui Xuan Phai – For the Love of Hanoi” Award. He also collects photos and ancient maps of Hanoi across the 19thand 20th centuries.
