The experience and transformation of the Hanoi Chinese Middle School, 1954-1968 Lai, Janet
The Hanoi Chinese Middle School was the only secondary school for ethnic Chinese students in Hanoi, North Vietnam. Its vicissitude from 1954 to 1968 coincided with the relationship between the Beijing and Hanoi governments and the escalation of the Vietnam War. Based on the recollections of 19 alumni, it is possible to trace the gradual Vietnamisation of the school and the personal conflict and upheaval that resulted from the process of trying to make the ethnic Chinese students more 'Vietnamese' and how this process was affected by war with the Americans.
