More than 100 photos of the Vietnamese people during the World War I period are on display at an exhibition which opens in Paris from November 19 to December 30.
Organised by the Vietnamese Associations in France, the exhibits are part of a military image archives at the French Library of International Contemporary Documentation. The images show the working and living conditions of the first Vietnamese who were brought to France by the French colonial government in the early 20th century to serve the war. 


At the exhibition, historian Pierre Brocheux introduced the historical context since nearly 100,000 Vietnamese people, mainly from poor areas of Vietnam, were sent to France together with 240,000 colonial soldiers from Africa and Indochina.
The Vietnamese expatriates had to work in weapon and gunpowder factories clean up battlefields and carry wounded soldiers, and even had to join the combat, he added.

Researcher Francois Trieu, who spent four months to collect and study documentary photos, described the exhibition as a “spiritual responsibility” to pay tribute to the deceased. 
The event is being held to remember the Vietnamese people who were shifted to serve in the war, and were often forgotten later during the war's anniversary events in France. This year, the French people are celebrating the 100th year of the First World War.
