PANO – The Ministry of Information and Communications and the Party Committee and the People’s Committee of Ho Chi Minh City issued a set of stamps on “Communist fighter Nguyen Thi Minh Khai (1910-1941)” on November 23rd.

The event aims to mark the 72nd anniversary of South Vietnam’s Uprising Day, and to honour the communist fighter’s great contributions to the revolutionary cause.

The figure in the background of the party flag is her portrait, with a firm face, which depicts the ideal and ambition of a real communist.

Nguyen Thi Minh Khai was born in 1910 in Vinh Yen commune, Vinh City, Nghe An province. She was the first and only female secretary in the Saigon-Cho Lon Party Committee. In August, 1941, she was captured and sentenced to death by the French colonialists.
