60th Foundation Anniversary of Viet-Minh's Front (19/5/1941 - 19/5/2001)

Code: 863

     On February 8, 1941, Uncle Ho returned to the homeland to directly lead Vietnamese Revolution. The Congress of Central Committee of Indochinese Communist Party (non Vietnam Communist Party) was held in May 1941 to decide the establishment of "Vietnam Independence League" (shortened as Viet-Minh's Front). That opened a new stage of Vietnamese Revolution's history.

     Viet-Minh's Front was founded in Pac Bo (Cao Bang province) on May 19, 1941. With their tasks to mobilize people’s unity, they considerably contributed to the victory of the August Revolution in 1945.

     To commemorate the 60th Birthday of Viet-Minh's Front, the Department General of Post and Telecommunication issues the stampset "60th Foundation Anniversary of Viet-Minh's Front (19/5/1941 - 19/5/2001)" with the face value of VND400.

The image of Uncle Ho is presented the founder and leader of Viet-Minh's Front in order to implement his great and noble as for the cause of fighting for national liberation, homeland's independence and freedom.
