The marooned national relic

(15:37:04 PM 25/11/2013)
( - Hoang Vien national historical relic in central Nghe An province’s Hung Nguyen district has been deserted for several years.

The three chambers left of Hoang Vien national relic.


The relic, which bears the imprints of key revolutionists from 1930 – 1945, has sustained serious damage and has been neglected since 2001.


Five chambers and a secret cellar have disappeared over time. Locals had to use bamboo and makeshift beams to keep the relic from crumbling in the full force of super typhoon Haiyan, which battered the central region two weeks ago, killing almost a dozen and causing huge damage to the area.


The worship photos of key revolutionists back then are put on the ground inside the Hoang Vien relic.


On the damp cold ground rest dozens of worship photos of the revolutionists, including Nguyen Van Linh, former Vietnam’s Secretary General.


The relic is now home to only a brass pot and tray, which were used to cook and hold plaster for printing propaganda leaflets.


The relic is originally a house owned by revolutionist Hoang Vien and his brother duringthe French resistance war. The house was later used for the secret rendezvous of many revolutionists.


“The relic has sustained considerable damage. What’s worst, there’s no room to reverently worship the revolutionists. Our kids will likely not know who these key figures were,” lamented Hoang Hieu, former chair of Hung Chau commune’s People’s Committee.
