A Visitor to a Museum / Posetitel Muzeya (Konstantin Lopushansky, 1989)
Võ Thị Sáu (1933 – March 13, 1952) is a national martyr of Vietnam who fought against the French colonialists and was executed on an island in the Con Dao archipelago in the southeastern province of Ba Ria-Vung Tau.
Sau was born in 1933 in Ba Ria and began her revolutionary career at the age of 14. Among her activities was an attack on July 14, 1948 in which she used a grenade that killed a French officer and injured 14 soldiers. She was arrested in early 1950 when she launched another attack and was put in jail and given a death sentence in Chi Hoa Prison in the former Sai Gon. Feared for her strong and courageous revolutionary will, the French colonialists shipped her to Con Dao and shot her on January 23, 1952 when she was only 19. Sau refused to be blindfolded and sang until her final breath. [x]
