Exhibition highlights images of Vietnamese labourers during WWI

PARIS (VNS) — More than 100 photos of the Vietnamese people during the World War I period are on display at an exhibition that will run till 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 living and working conditions of the first Vietnamese people who were shifted to France by the French-backed government to serve in the war in the early 20th century.

According to the organiser, 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.

At the exhibition, historian Pierre Brocheux briefly introduced the historical context in which nearly 100,000 Vietnamese people were recruited and transported to France during this period.

Brocheux said that these people were both "workers" and "soldiers", labouring mainly in logistics, including weapons and other military equipment manufacturing, battlefield clean-up and carrying of wounded soldiers, besides fighting in the war.

According to the archives, of the total 340,000 people mobilised from Africa and Indochina for the French war, nearly 100,000 came from Viet Nam. Most of them came from poor and rural areas.

Many of the Vietnamese labourers died of diseases during the arduous journey to France itself. The ones who survived the journey had to do hard and life-threatening work in France. Many of them soon realised the unjustness with which the French had forced colonial citizens to bleed in and finance their wars.

"For me, a Vietnamese who was born and grew up here in France, the exhibition is not just a 'spiritual task' to showcase respect and gratitude for the sacrifice of our predecessors," researcher Francois Trieu told the Vietnam News Agency correspondent in France.

"It also gives the French and the Vietnamese people in France an insight into a part of history to understand and value what they have at present," added Trieu, who spent four months researching and collecting the images for the event. — VNS

Egyptian mamluks were also recruited by France during the Napoleonic wars. The mamluks beated the Mongol at their own term--calvary style.


Is that some sort of a weasel?  Those bastards can fight good.

The egyption beated the mongol fair and square, rushing them head on then fell into the mongol's rear, slaughter a hugr number ofl those mongol wives and children accompany their army.

the egyption mamluks is the reason islam still exist today. the mongols were leveling all of persia at that time.

Thanks for the information, I've never heard of mamluks before. I must have mistook them for marmasuk.

Mongols are probably at the extent of their empire. I don't think they can hold on much longer at the fringes of the empire.

We die for these cowardly French bastards because our own king was a mere puppet.  Bao Dai should have been executed.  Photo below is Vietnamese troops in France in 1914.
