Although Hoa Lo prison was innitially built for 460 inmates, but the number has stretched up to 2000 at some point. This prison, nicknamed by American POW as Hanoi Hilton, has a track record of mistreating human people who stayed there. Despite the fact that most of the prisoners in the history of Hoa Lo were Vietnamese, during the Vietnam War, many American pilots were held and tortured there. All for the sake of making propaganda statements praising their “great” living conditions and condemning USA for their attack on innocent Vietnam. It is very transparent in the series of short propaganda movies shown within Hoa Lo Museum in Hanoi.
