The opening ceremony of our special exhibition “Agent Orange – Conscience and Justice” took place at the Kon Tum Museum and Library (Quyet Thang Ward, Kon Tum Town, Kon Tum Province) on July 20th.


The exhibition is collaborative work done by the War Remnants Museum and its partners, including the Vietnam Association for Victims of Agent Orange/dioxin and the Vietnamese Army Chemical Corps Museum. It aims to help the public better understand how the U.S. military used the poisonous chemicals containing the dangerous contaminant called dioxin during the Vietnam War and their lingering effects on the environment and human health. Apart from stories about pain and suffering, the exhibition also illustrates what the Vietnamese Party, government, military, and organizations have been doing to help relieve the pain caused by Agent Orange/dioxin. You can also find stories of victims of Agent Orange/dioxin who have overcome their difficulties and integrated with the community.

At the opening ceremony, the War Remnants Museum presented 40 gifts to victims of Agent Orange/dioxin in the province.

The above activities are part of the series of actions that the museum has done to commemorate the Day for Victims of Agent Orange/dioxin August 10 this year.

The exhibition runs from July 20 to August 25, 2022. We expect to see all the interested individuals and organizations at the exhibition!
