Sound Bite and conversation:



Adams, Eddie

(photographer in 1968) , speaking English:
-  "The photo ruined two lives. The delinquent’s and the victim’s."

Lop, Nguyen Thi

(Widow of Vietcong) , speaking Vietnamese:
-  "Loan was a Vietnamese just as my husband was. He was one of us. But he took my husband on the street and shot him to death – a compatriot, he simply shot him to death. He caused so much pain for me. I do not know if I’ll ever be able to get over the death of my husband."

Adams, Eddie

(photographer in 1968) , speaking English:
-  "Supposedly Americans cut out the heart of North-Vietnamese soldiers. They decapitated people. Horrible action on both sides."

Rocque, Gene La

(Admiral of the US-Navy) , speaking English:
-  "Every Vietnamese was a potential enemy. The children, the women, young and old – everybody had decided to save his country and was ready to take every risk to kill an American soldier."

Miles, Ed

(Vietnam veteran) , speaking English:
-  "We destroyed Vietnam although we should have saved it. The terrible thing was that the Army had sent us there, as they said, to win the heart and mind of the Vietnamese people. Then we arrived and showed how we interpreted this: we burned down their villages."

Rocque, Gene La

(Admiral of the US-Navy) , speaking English:
-  "General Loan’s action showed how inhuman the Americans and the Vietnamese were. He showed that the war exceeded every human norm; it became a devilish, bloodthirsty play."

Adams, Eddie

(photographer in 1968) , speaking English:
-  "Then we read in press releases that they organised demonstrations in America using this photo."

Lop, Nguyen Thi

(Widow of Vietcong) , speaking Vietnamese:
-  "I did not know that my husband was killed, I did not want to believe it when they told me. Then I saw the photo in several American newspapers..."

Adams, Eddie

(photographer in 1968) , speaking English:
-  "His body fell to ground. The Sheriff turned to us and said: They killed many of your people – and of mine as well."

Adams, Eddie

(photographer in 1968) , speaking English:
-  "The man was caught as he came out from the building next to a pagoda. This was the best material that we had, so we followed them in the streets. Then suddenly a man appeared next to me. I was not further away from the captive than two meters. Then I saw as the man reached for his gun. "

Lop, Nguyen Thi

(Widow of Vietcong) , speaking Vietnamese:
-  "His troop wanted to retreat but they were already surrounded by soldiers. They could only escape through a river. My husband fought on to ensure the retreat of his comrades. Then he was arrested."

Miles, Ed

(Vietnam veteran) , speaking English:
-  "With the Tet attack they showed that they wanted to win the war at any price. After this we had to fight to survive."

Lop, Nguyen Thi

(Widow of Vietcong) , speaking Vietnamese:
-  "I did not know anything about my husband. He only said the he visits a course during the night and after that I did not hear anything from him."
