Images of anti-war protests against the ‘American war’ from around the world. The caption under the photo surrounded by flames reads: “Self-immolation by Rodgers Lapoter, a 22-year-old American, in front of the UN Headquarters as protest against the US invasion of Viet Nam. 09th November 1965.”
Narrow back street in Ha Noi.
Near central Hanoi. Some housing located on top of a number of store fronts.
50mph hour carrying 10 five gallon bottles of water. Damn.
Picture of Hoa Lo prison (the “Hanoi Hilton”) as it once looked. This is where John McCain was held. Only a small part of this building is left. A high rise hotel is now next door.
At the Hoa Lo Prison museum. Political prisoners held in shackles by the French.
From Hoa Lo prison, a display illustrating water boarding, torture and resistance.
