Beautiful Portraits of Vietnamese Girls From the Youth of the Republic, 1961

The Youth of the Republic (Thanh Nữ Cộng Hòa) is a paramilitary organization of the Can Lao Party under Ngo Dinh Diem. Under the leadership of Tran Le Xuan, the wife of adviser Ngo Dinh Diem, this organization often has monumental force demonstrations, attracting the attention of the press both nationally and internationally.

A veteran of the Army of the Republic of Vietnam commented: “At that time, I went to see these ladies performing bubble shooting at Tao Đan garden. This is mainly sloppy propaganda. These ladies are only here to put up fashion shows for the domestic and foreign media.”
