Monument to spies

Winners write history. Officially the Northern Vietnamese army in 1975 "liberated" the South from "capitalism and the Americans". Many Southern Vietnamese had a different opinion then, remembering Viet Congs' massacres of civilians years before. In nearly each town in the South nowadays you can find such monuments dedicated to the ones who "helped" the North during the war. These "heroes" are honoured every year and their relatives appently still hold important privileges. Elsewhere history books written by other winners call those people "traitors", who often finished their life hanging from a pole #war #propaganda
