Ho Ho Ho Chi Minh
“It is a sign of wisdom to negotiate instead of fighting” spoke Hồ Chí Minh, Vietnamese revolutionary and politician. He died in 1969 during the Vietnam War and did not live to see the withdrawal of the American invaders and the reunification of his beloved homeland. As prime minister and president until his death, he determined the destiny of his country, whose people affectionately called him Uncle Hồ. Influenced by deep Marxist-Leninist convictions, he became a worldwide symbol of the striving for self-determination. Even today, gratitude for this is omnipresent in the Vietnamese population.
The book is a collection of selected quotes from Hồ Chí Minh juxtaposed with Michael Herman’s expressive photographs of modern Vietnam. Especially today, in turbulent times of increasing wars and crises, it can be useful to take a look at the history of this special people, and in the best case to learn from it.
