Germany’s Junge Welt (Young World) newspaper covered late President Ho Chi Minh in its May 19 issue on the occasion of his 125th birth anniversary.

The article, titled “Father of the Revolution”, gave an overview of his adventurous life from a rural boy to the Vietnamese President.

It began with the event of September 2, 1945 when Ho Chi Minh read the Declaration of Independence of the Democratic Republic of Vietnam (DRV) at Ba Dinh Square, and led readers along the course to discover the President’s role in the struggle for national liberation from the French colonial regime, and how he could mobilise millions of people to join the revolution.

It also covers the leader’s major life milestones from his birth place and parents to the end of 1911 when Nguyen Tat Thanh (as he was then known) was hired as a kitchen helper under the name Ba aboard a French freighter course to Marseille.

He then travelled to different countries in Europe, Africa and America to learn how to achieve prosperity and independence for his country, it wrote.

The article also quoted international historians and experts hailing his righteousness and generosity, and affirming that all those who got to know Ho Chi Minh would never forget him.
