◊ Prison relic

 

The prison was built by French Colonial in 1908 on an area of 500m² to detain patriotic revolutionaries. In 1940, the prison was expanded to 1,700m² and surrounded by solid stone and brick walls with 4m-high and 0.5m-think. Beds for prisoners were covered with cement and assembled foot shackles along to the length of floor. The prison was similar to a kiln in summer by Lao wind and cold in winter due to the severe weather in the borderland region. French Colonial turned the prison into a hell to detain, doom and abolish the fight will of communist soldiers. In period 1930 – 1945, the prison detained 1,007 revolutionaries and patriots, many of whom are excellent leaders of Viet Nam’s revolution such as Le Duan, Truong Chinh, Van Tien Dung, Xuan Thuy, Tran Huy Lieu, Nguyen Co Thach, Mai Chi Tho, Tran Quoc Hoan...
 

 

Before withdrawing from Son La in 1952, French Colonial bombed in the prison to erase their crime traces. In 1965, American Empire bombed in the North, so that Son La Prison was almost completely destroyed.
 

 

With the desire of training patriotic tradition for young generation, a part of Son La Prison was rebuilt.
