Ho Chi Minh (born on May 19, 1890 as Nguyen Tat Thanh, also known as Nguyen Van Ba, Nguyen Ai Quoc, sometimes used other aliases) was a Vietnamese revolutionary who imposed one-party rule on Vietnam, dashing any hopes of it becoming a democratic country. He was Prime Minister of the so-called Democratic Republic of Vietnam (actually a totalitarian Communist state) from 1945 to 1955. He assumed the office of President in 1955 and remained there until his death on September 2, 1969. After the civil war ended in 1975, Saigon was renamed Ho Chi Minh City. The name Ho Chi Minh means "The One Who Brings Light".

Life and Career

Nguyen Tat Thanh left Vietnam at the age of 20. He traveled to London, New York and Paris and took different jobs (among others: worked as a ship steward, gardener, cook in a restaurant). While working on a ship he used name Nguyen Van Ba, then he returned to his original name.

In 1919 he joined the French Socialist Party and in 1920, after the party fell apart, he become a member of the French Communist Party. He became an expert in colonialism issues. In 1922 he was delegated to Moscow, where he studied the doctrine and techniques of communism. In 1925 he was sent to China, officially as a staff member of the Soviet Consulate in Kanton, in fact as a Comintern agent. Then he became the Director of the Comintern Office in Shanghai. Since then, until the start of the Second World War he traveled a lot over Asia.

  • Ho throughout his life was a dedicated Communist internationalist. In 1938 Ho went from Moscow to Moa's side at Yenan.[1][2]
  • Ho Chi Minh was a nationalist in the sense that he had a special affection for Vietnam’s people and favored Vietnamese unification and independence, but, from his reading of Lenin’s Theses onward, he firmly adhered to the Leninist principle that Communist nations should subordinate their interests to those of the international Communist movement.
