Many memorabilia collections during Vietnam war. One of the best collections that made anybody who ever lived or visit Saigon pre,during or post Vietnam liberation war were the Catheral Basilica Saigon memorabilia because the very exciting,and beautiful art design of that catholic church with best einvirontment garden dan especilally the Jesus Christ ‘s Mother Mary bigger statue in the front of that Basilica. Someone told me that this cathedral had the same design with Cathedra Notre Dam in Frenc. The Cathedral ‘s memorabillia in IMUCS collections to choice by the collector were The Document of Cathedral Eletricity abonnement during Indochina era before WWII , two vintage photo illustration in Saigon Agenda 1964 with Mother Mary statue and another illustration without the statue , and one vintage photo of catheral with Mary Statue. The memorabillia collections will gave us information that the Mary statue was builded by the Saigon regime first president Ngo Dihn Diem who was the Rome’s Catholic. The leader after Diem didn’t destroy that monument included during three war crisis first in 1963 the Diem Assasination year, second during Tet Offensive 1968, and the last the fall of saigon 1975. Also after the Vietcong with RDV vietminh army had control the Saigon administrations the Cathedral and Mother mary statue still exist without any destructions. At my last visit 2009, I made some photo of the Cathedral included my profile in the front of that catheral as the new memorabable photo collections for anybody who ever or never saw that best cathedral in Asia and as the comparative for their own country’s cathedral.
I had ever prayed in the front Mother Marry statue in 2007 ,asking Her mercy in helping me to found the Vietnam Liberation war unique collections and when I turn back the small stamps shop was found, and from that phillately trader ‘s information I have found the best collection that I show in this blog, but very pity at my last visit I didn’t found him anymore. Complete story please read in “Vietnam War 4.3 Vietnam liberation war” .
So the second time my profile was put in this blog, I hope all the collectors will happy to looked at the old traveller and unique collector from Indonesia. Any comment were need, also please choice the best collection to put in IMUC cybermuseum.
