War Remnants Museum - Ho Chi Minh City (Vietnam) - Part 2


Be prepared for more mind twisting emotions once you have read War Remnants Museum Part 1. While I am certain you will appreciate the effort of how the exhibits/things were salvaged, your heart will sink once you view the bullets, guns and the cruelty of "Agent Orange", which caused the war casualties, birth defects, health problems and disabilities. Truly sad, here are the pictures and more to follow in Part 3.

  1. You are absolutely right, when you say - "One gotta be strong mentality if you want to visit War Remnants museum". Killing of 3 million Vietnamese is a humongous number - cannot fathom the purpose of war. Fatalities, injuries apart - the next generation with birth defects and deformities is something one cannot digest and it is a reminder all throughout the person's life that - the deformity is not because of his/her mistake, neither becoz of family history - but some Admiral took a decision to go for war and made them a victim for life. Reminds me of Bhopal gas tragedy in India and the aftermaths!
    Lots of history!
    A nice write up and a genuine capture of the aftermaths in the form pics, Nava!

  5. Surely not for the faint-hearted. Reading about the fatalities and seeing how the young, the unborn, and innocent lives have been snuffed out is so sad. If only nations could learn from these documented ravages of war!
