Estimated tens of thousands of books and recordings have been destroyed by student’s bonfires and private destruction since the campaign began 5/21. Virtually all bookstores have been closed down by the edict against sale of books and recordings made during the time of previous regime. Picture was taken 5/29 in Saigon. — Image by © Bettmann/CỎBIS (Link to manhhai flickr album “1975 – Fall of Saigon”)
