VTV.vn - An art programme entitled “Unforgettable Days” was held in the northern province of Dien Bien, where the battle of Dien Bien Phu took place 64 years ago, to celebrate the victory that ousted the French from Vietnam.

 

Songs and dances were performed to celebrate the previous generations’ heroic struggles and sacrifices to secure a triumph which was described as having resonated across the five continents and shook the world.

With the participation of nearly 100 singers and dancers, the gala night brought the audience back to a historic period of the nation.

Earlier at the A1 Cemetery for Fallen Soldiers, a candlelit vigil was held to pay tribute to those who have died for national independence.

The cemetery was built in 1958 roughly 100 metres south of the A1 Hill, where the battle took place.

On May 7, 1954, Vietnam secured a final victory over the French at Dien Bien Phu, forcing them to sign the Geneva Accords on restoring peace in Vietnam and ending nearly 100 years of French colonial rule in Vietnam.
