A Resistance Jar, used for patriotic rice donations by the family of Mrs Vinh of Co Do village, Quoc Oai district, Ha Tay province (now Hanoi capital).

From 1948 to 1952, Mrs Vinh's family used the jar to set aside part of their household's daily rice for the war effort, donating it for use as rations by the resistance forces, militia members and guerilla fighters. In the early days of the national resistance struggle against the French, at a time of great difficulty and supply shortages, and in response to the Appeal of President Ho Chi Minh, there were many such “Resistance jars”, “Rice jars to save people from hunger” and “Savings jars”, vivid manifestations of the solidarity and patriotism of the Vietnamese people, contributing keenly to the resistance struggle against the French colonialists, thus ensuring our nation's total victory.
