Nguyen Thi Binh:
come from a family which could be called nationalistic. My grandfather
on my mother’s side was a great patriot, a nationalist. My father and
mother were influenced by my grandfather’s family. For that reason,
during the French occupation,
although my parents did not participate in clandestine activities before
'45—they did not participate because they
were civil servants, but it is possible to say that patriotism existed
in the heart of every Vietnamese.
that reason, when the August
Revolution came in '45, everyone,
including my family,in '45 my mother had
already passed away, my father immediately joined the Viet Minh. And I, too,
participated in the activities of the Viet Minh.
