Exhibition commemorates late war hero Dinh Nup

A photo exhibition on the late hero Dinh Nup, a guerrilla leader of the ethnic Bhana group during the country's resistance war against the French opened in the central highland province of Gia Lai on April 29.

Over 100 pictures by local photographers are on display at exhibition. They describe the life and revolutionary career of hero Dinh Nup.

Dinh Nup led the local resistance against the occupying French for many years and was a leading character in Nguyen Ngoc’s famous novel Dat nuoc dung len (The Country Rises Up). He was also the first member of an ethnic minority to be awarded the title “Hero of the People’s Armed Forces”.

The event aims to mark the 100th birth anniversary of Nup ( May 2,1914 -2014) and will run until May 2.
