The Vietnam War 1945–1975: “Napalm Girl”



Few who have seen Nick Ut’s Pulitzer Prize-winning photograph could forget the sight of 10-year-old Kim Phuc, running naked and wounded from a napalm attack. Ut helped to save Kim’s life, and the two became lifelong friends. They talk here about the day the napalm bombs dropped.

Presented in conjunction with the exhibition Vietnam War 1945–1975.

How did the Vietnam War define a generation? In our groundbreaking exhibition “The Vietnam War: 1945-1975,” the New-York Historical Society examined the causes, progression, and consequences of one of the most controversial events of the 20th century.
