Nguyen Thi Thanh Thuy, Deputy Director of the municipal Department of Culture and Sports, said the launch of the room demonstrates people’s sentiments to and respect for the heroic mothers who contributed greatly to the nation’s revolutionary cause.
Using smart-museum technology, the room has vividly captured images of the mothers during their past struggle for national independence and reunification, said the museum’s Director Nguyen Thi Tham.
On this occasion, the museum also showcased 150 big-bellied jars from ethnic minority groups in the Central Highlands region, which have been collected over the past 20 years.
Last July, HCM City presented the title of Heroic Vietnamese Mother to 44 women on the occasion of the 71st anniversary of the War Invalids and Martyrs Day (July 27, 2018), for their sacrifices towards national independence and reunification.
The city currently has around 5,500 Vietnamese heroic mothers. –VNA
