1. Introduction Ho Chi Minh, born on the 9.05.1890 in Huang Tru during the French occupation of Vietnam, experienced the brutal and exploiting French colonialism with all its consequences already in a very young age. In the 1980 's, French had full control over the Union of Indochina which were formed by the three countries: Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos. Vietnam itself was separated into three states such as Cochin China, Annam and Tonkin.

However, the birthplace of the Enlightenment and resulting French Revolution provided little in return, intentionally leaving Vietnam to be grossly illiterate, lacking any modern industry, and dependent upon France.
