Ten typical stories about harsh prison life, love, motherhood and comradeship in "the hell on the earth" will become the highlight of the programme.

In particular, during the week of gratitude to commemorate the 73rd Fallen and Wounded Soldiers’ Day, visitors who experience the relic at night can also watch the animation at the death cell area of the meeting between mother and daughter – comrade Nguyen Duc Canh.

At the root of a nearly 100-year-old tree, in a theatrical presentation, delegates seem to meet musician Do Nhuan with the story of making musical instruments from the branches of the tree during years imprisoned at Hoa Lo Prison.

In the sparkling candlelight and the scent of incense, visitors will pay their respects and gratitude in the sacred space at the monument to revolutionary soldiers who died at Hoa Lo Prison.

After finishing activities in the week of gratitude, the Organizing Committee will maintain the tour and experience at 19:00 every Friday, Saturday, Sunday./.
