The Ministry of Information and Communication has announced the issuance of a set of stamps on “Communist soldier Nguyen Thi Minh Khai (1910-1941)” on November 23rd, marking the 72nd anniversary of South Vietnam’s Uprising Day.

The stamps will circulate on the post network from November 23rd, 2012 until June 30th, 2014.

Hoang Anh Thi, Chairman of Viet Stamp Club, stressed that the issuance of the stamp collection about communist Nguyen Thi Minh Khai is to honour her great contributions and to educate young generations about the bright example of this resilient, undaunted revolutionary who devoted her life to the national revolutionary cause of the nation.

He added that the stamp issuance is to materialise the wish of Ms. Le Nguyen Hong Minh, the only daughter of martyrs Le Hong Phong and Nguyen Thi Minh Khai. At present, Le Nguyen Hong Minh is more than 70 years old and suffers from heart disease. Martyr Nguyen Thi Minh Khai was born in 1910 in Vinh City, Nghe An Province. She was the first and only female secretary of Sai Gon-Cho Lon Party Committee. She is a typical Vietnamese revolutionary and a resilient communist. Also, she was one of the leaders of the Indochinese Communist Party who guided the South’s insurrection. In July 1940, she was arrested and sentenced to death by the French colonialists.
