On June 5, 1911, Nguyen Tat Thanh, using the name of Van Ba, boarded the vessel Latouche-Tréville in Vietnam and headed overseas to seek ways to liberate the country from colonial rule.

During his 30-year journey, Nguyen Tat Thanh, who later became President Ho Chi Minh, found a path to national liberation, turning Vietnam into an independent, free, and unified country moving towards socialism.
