Hanoi Hilton

This is the XXX Prison, also known as the Hanoi Hilton.

Two-thirds of the prison was torn down to build the highrise you see behind it. The museum inside the prison was interesting. Not surprisingly, it focussed more on how the French used the prison to torture Vietnamese prisoners. It glossed over how the Vietnamese used it on Vietnam (American) War POWs. Most of the POW exhibit was "look, we gave Americans cards, we let them study foreign languages, aren't we nice?"
