The event is being held by the Hanoi Municipal Department of Culture and Sports to commemorate the 76th anniversary of the National Resistance Day ((December 19, 1946 - 2022).

The house, owned by Nguyen Van Duong, is located in Van Phuc Silk Village in Ha Dong District and was a temporary residence of President Ho Chi Minh from December 3 to 19, 1946.

At the house, President Ho Chi Minh penned his appeal for a national resistance war, calling the entire people of Vietnam to resist the attempts of the French to restore colonial rule in Vietnam and protect national independence and freedom, reported NDO.

During the war time, Nguyen Van Duong’s house served as a meeting venue for revolutionary officials and a secret shelter for many Party senior officials, including Hoang Quoc Viet and Hoang Van Thu.

Works on display also include ancient outfits made with silk from Van Phuc Village, which is well-known for its traditional sericulture, weaving, and silk products./.
