Hỏa Lò Prison, sarcastically called the “Hanoi Hilton” by American POWs who were incarcerated and tortured there during the Vietnam War…

has a history of injustice and barbarism that goes much farther back in time.

I will allow the photographs to speak for themselves and leave you to sort out fact from fiction and objective from subjective truth…
