I went to see Kim Phuc speak the other night. It was a surreal experience to see a woman that is such a large part of history. You just don’t think that you will ever meet people like her.
I actually spoke to her afterward. I shook her hand and touched her arm that was burned so badly during a napalm attack in the Vietnam War.
Who is Kim Phuc, The Girl in the Picture Kim Phuc is now an inspirational public speaker The Girl in the Photograph, the Napalm Girl, the little girl who was the focus of what is considered ‘ THE’ Photo Of the 20th Century is alive and well and living here in Canada. Kim Phuc was the little girl from the Vietnam War whose village was blasted with napalm bombs. The moment was frozen in time as she ran naked with 60% of her body covered in 3rd degree burns.
Napalm burns at 800° Celcius, I learned that evening, and she told us of how a soldier tried to ease her pain by pouring water on her burns. We all know now that that only makes it worse and she passed out. After being brought to a hospital, she was left for dead. However, fate intervened, and she is alive and well today and telling her story to the world.
I had first read about Kim Phuc during my travels to Vietnam. My Copy of The Girl in the Picture Skin Peels off Kim’s body running from Napalm Blast Bootleg copies of her book The Girl in the Picture: The Story of Kim Phúcwere sold all over the tourist route when we travelled in Vietnam.
The image of her running away from the deadly blast, graces the cover.
I was fascinated with the story. I read about her recovery while in Vietnam. 14 months in the hospital. I read about the years in which she was exploited by her government as propaganda and paraded around the media, I read about her childhood and I read about how after the war, she lived and studied in Cuba. It had more impact on me because I was in Vietnam at the time.
I was visiting places where fighting actually took place. I had visited the Cu Chi tunnels and the War Remnants Museum, DMZ Zone, and the Mekong Delta. I was seeing history as I was reading about it. Kim Phuc, the girl in the picture, is such a strong symbol of the Vietnam war.
And then I came to the part in the book where she convinced the government to let her go on her honeymoon to Moscow.
Being another communist country, she was allowed to travel there. Travel to Canada Kim Phuc posing with scars She had a stop in Gander Newfoundland, Canada, on her return flight and it was there that she defected to Canada. Wow, the lady that I was reading about while I was in Vietnam now lives in Canada. It was a good book and it always stuck with me. So when Dave’s mom asked me if I knew who Kim Phuc was and if I would be interested in going to see her speak, I immediately said yes!
Vietnam in Pop Culture It was hard to believe that she lived less than an hour away from me. Growing up during the 70’s and 80’s, Vietnam was everywhere. I loved the Vietnam movies made in Hollywood – Uncommon Valor, Apocalypse Now, First Blood, and of course Platoon.
I never really connected with their historical value, I just enjoyed their stories. Vietnam seemed so far away, and at that young age, it seemed like it happened a long time ago.
At the age of 10 when I watched Magnum PI talk about “Nam” with his buddies on TV, I never really thought about the fact that he was talking about a war that was less than a decade old then. So, when I grew up and went to Vietnam, I was amazed to be in a place that I saw portrayed in so many movies and TV shows. Then, it was even stranger to see a woman here in Canada that I first read about while in Vietnam.
Kim Phuc spreads forgiveness I saw Kim Phuc: The Girl in the Picture, proud Vietnamese/Canadian, speak the other night in Burlington Ontario. She is a beautiful, humble, soft spoken, yet riveting and powerful woman.
She told her story to 500 women. As the UNESCO Goodwill Ambassador for peace and founder of the Kim Phuc Foundation, she moved us all to tears. And yet she also made us laugh and smile, and she spread a powerful message of forgiveness. I admired her strength and courage. I was impressed with her public speaking skills and natural ability to inspire as well.
Many people have a story to tell, but cannot tell it in a gripping way.
Kim What is the name of the girl in the picture Story Kim started her speech by saying “I believe everyone has a story to tell, but tonight it is my turn.” And tell a story she did. She told of surviving a Napalm Blast, being left for dead, and then being rescued and sent to a hospital in Saigon. She spent 16 months in excruciating pain and wanted to die. When she returned home, she was afraid that she would never be loved and was in constant pain.
She told of how she wanted to become a doctor, but how her education was interrupted by her government who decided to use her as property of the state and exploited her to the media. She was watched 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and had no freedom.
She talked how once again, during that time, she wanted to die. She talked about how she eventually made her way to Cuba (another communist country) which led her, eventually, to Canada. The Girl in the Picture She is friends with Nick Ut, the man who took her picture and saved her life.
More amazingly, she has met the man that coordinated the attacks on her village. Incredibly, they are now good friends and she has forgiven him and he has forgiven himself. Powerful stuff. Her story is truly one of triumph. She has managed to bring all of her family to Canada from Vietnam, she now travels the world spreading peace, she gives aid to those in need starting her own foundation, and she speaks regularly, inspiring so many people from all over the world.
If she can survive and thrive, well, why can’t we? She still suffers from chronic pain and has the scars to prove it. But, in her words (now, I am paraphrasing, but this was her message)… She is lucky to have had her photo taken.
She will not forget the millions of other people weren’t so lucky and she is grateful for the opportunity to travel the world, provide a good life for her family, spread a positive message, and live a happy life. I won’t tell you her full story, because you should read her book. You can buy The Girl in the Picture: The Story of Kim Phúc on Amazon.

Fortunelly her name already means her luck in misery. In vietnamese, Kim means metal and Phuc means luck. So Kim Phuc is strong luck like metal. Very cruel and terrible war. Mrs. Kim Phuc, miraculously survived.
Many of them died. Truly a living napalm bomb story. I saw the child picture earlier, but today is the first time I hear her story. Thank you for sharing her story and all the best for Mrs. Kim Phuc.

Thank you for spreading the word! It’s a great opportunity to hear Kim’s story in person and support a great cause. Reply • You’ve likely seen the horrifying picture of a naked little girl running after a napalm bombing during the Vietnam War.
That little girl has grown up. Kim Phúc, now 56, was known to the world as “Napalm Girl.” Now, she’s an author and an activist, winning the Dresden Peace Prize in February 2019. She will share her story at 5:30 p.m. June 8 in the Alumni Lounge of the Pyle Center, a co-sponsor of the event. “Celebration of Peace and Mindfulness” is a free event that includes a special appearance by Nick Ut, the photographer of the Pulitzer Prize-winning photo.
Tickets are not required.
The Center for Southeast Asian Studies (CSEAS) is sponsoring the talk, which takes place 47 years to the day after the photo was taken. “You can feel the impact of the bomb, you can see it,” says Mary E. McCoy, faculty associate in the Department of Communication Arts and CSEAS. “This photo connected human suffering to the air war. Suddenly, it wasn’t an abstract concept.” Still, she has hesitated to show it in classes.
She’s not alone. “People have been reluctant because it seemed voyeuristic — that it was somehow a violation of her,” McCoy says. Her view has changed after reading Phúc’s 2017 book “Fire Road: The Napalm Girl’s Journey through the Horrors of War to Faith, Forgiveness and Peace.” “The fly-by was not an inconsequential event, for falling from that underbelly were four large ice-black bombs,” Phúc writes.
“And as the bombs softly made their way to the ground, landing one by one, somersaulting end over end — whump-whump, whump-whump, whump-whump, whump-whump — I knew I had to flee. These were not bombs that fell heavily from the sky, as I had heard that bombs would do; no, these bombs all but floated down.
There was something sinister in those cans.” She was left for dead in a morgue with burns covering her body. As she eventually recovered, she dealt with anger and embarrassment from knowing the world had seen her at her most vulnerable. It took a long, long time but Phúc has accepted being known as the “Napalm Girl” and has used it as an opportunity to encourage peace.
“Forgiveness made me free from hatred,” Phúc told NPR. “I still have many scars on my body and severe pain most days but my heart is cleansed. Napalm is very powerful, but faith, forgiveness, and love are much more powerful. We would not have war at all if everyone could learn how to live with true love, hope, and forgiveness. If what is the name of the girl in the picture little girl in the picture can do it, ask yourself: Can you?” The Children’s Library International is funding the visit as part of an effort to raise funds for a library it is constructing in Phúc’s name in her home province of Trảng Bàng.
Mike Cullinane, associate director of the Center for Southeast Asian Studies and a faculty associate in the Department of History, was already an anti-war activist before ever seeing the photo. “It wasn’t a turning a point for me. I was already against the war. Napalm was already an enemy of everything I thought about,” Cullinane says. “This was just a confirmation photograph for me of something that should be eliminated.” But the photo had power in showing others what was happening in a way that words couldn’t.
“You’re not dropping napalm on north Vietnamese soldiers. You’re dropping it on innocent noncombatant people,” Cullinane says. “This is a little girl.
She just got napalmed. Why did that happen?” In May, CSEAS held “The Terrors of War, Iconic Images in Teaching,” a professional development workshop for 21 Wisconsin K–12 teachers. The photo, and many others, were part of a discussion about the challenges teachers face when teaching history.
McCoy thought the workshop would show teachers how to teach the history of these events. She’s been surprised to see the other ideas teachers are sharing, including samples of future lesson plans that use the photo.
“They’re trying to get kids to think about how these photos could connect with them, which is not what I expected,” McCoy says. “I like the way these teachers are doing it better. They’re giving the kids agency and they’ll remember the photos in a deeper way.” The teachers who were at the workshop will get to meet Phúc and Ut at a special luncheon the day of the talk.
They won’t just talk about a 9-year-old girl. They’ll talk about the woman she grew up to be. “The significance for me as a teacher is that this book and her visit make it not just OK but valuable to teach this photograph.
I’m OK with it now because she’s OK with it,” McCoy says.
“I told my class this last spring, finally I can teach this.”
A Member of Townsquare Entertainment News "More than any other Vietnam book in recent years, The Girl in the Picture confronts us with the ceaseless, ever-compounding casualties of modern warfare." —The San Francisco Chronicle On June 8, 1972, nine-year-old Kim Phuc, severely burned by napalm, ran from her blazing village in South Vietnam and into the eye of history.
Her photograph-one of the most unforgettable images of the twentieth century-was seen around the world and helped turn public opinion against the Vietnam War. This book is the story of how that photograph came to be-and the story of what is the name of the girl in the picture happened to that girl after the camera shutter closed. Award-winning biographer Denise Chong's portrait of Kim Phuc-who eventually defected to Canada and is now a UNESCO spokesperson-is a rare look at the Vietnam War from the Vietnamese point-of-view and one of the only books to describe everyday life in the wake of this war and to probe its what is the name of the girl in the picture effects on all its participants.

Although I lived the Vietnam war (at the end of the underground), this is the first time I gained any understanding of it. (Not that I've ever understood any war) The story is fascinating. Probably the only book I've read more than once. The writer is fabulous & she is an amazing actress.
It gives insight on the plight of the peasants in a gripping page turner. The story of this little girl who we saw on the front pages back in the day is fascinating. That it is a true story, yet reads like a novel is amazing. No spoiler here but you need to read to the end to find out what ultimately happened to this precious little girl. One of the images that haunt us from that time in history. If you have ever seen those iconic pics from the war and ever wondered what ever happened to those people after the horror they experienced then read this!, Such courage and strength after such a horrible tragedy and she is so brave and has moved on an made a good life for herself in spite of it all.
Good read! I have met and heard a lecture by Kim Phuc and her story is one of love and healing. The book is very informative and enlightened me who served in Vietnam in Tay Nihn as to the Vietnamese side of the war.
I found I couldn't put this book down once I started reading it. Her conversion to Christianity is amazing and certainly illustrates the power of the Bible. I am going to Vietnam next week and have been trying to read as much about it as possible before leaving. Although I am almost half way through the book it is what I will be taking on the plane for the long ride.
So far it has had a lot of information as to the terrible conditions and what the Southern Vietnamese people had to go through during the war.
This book is the story of Kim Phuc, her family, before and during the war, and her life afterwards, and how it affected those around her, and those closest to her. When I first ordered this book, I knew it was going to be heart wrenching, and hard to read. But what I didnâ€™t expect was to feel my heart actually break, and to tear up countless times whilst reading this. Denise Chong has written in such a way that itâ€™s almost like youâ€™re there.
Although the writing seems professional, distant and almost surgical, thereâ€™s what is the name of the girl in the picture something about it that really wrenches your heart, slowly cuts the heart strings one by one, and makes you ache.
Iâ€™ve read books about war before, but never a non fiction one like this. Reading this has really changed my perspective on a lot of things, and itâ€™s scary to think that this revelation came only about 18% into the book.
The more I read of this book, a chapter at a time, the more I feel sick to my stomach. To see how everything happened throughout Vietnam, and how the war affected them, and their own government, makes this a really hard read.
Continuing to read how the injustice in Vietnam continued to affect Kim Phuc throughout the years, continuing into her adult life was just unfair. So many tears came to my eyes reading the words on the page, and it was heart breaking. It was heart breaking to see her own government use her for their own selfish gain, because of this horrible thing that happened to her. I just couldnâ€™t believe it; I couldnâ€™t believe it at all.
What I was reading was just. Unbelievable. Heart wrenching. But also awe-inspiring. Phuc went through so much, and yet she still stood so strong, and did what she could to be her own person, and I just. Felt so inspired reading this.
There was so much in this that I want to talk about from this book, but I want to keep my review relatively short because thereâ€™s no way I could ever do this beautiful book justice. This book is going to haunt my nightmares; the way that this was written merely puts into perspective the victim and survivorâ€™s view of the war.
The images painted in my mind through this was horrifying. But also, Kim Phucâ€™s story is one of hope. Inspiration. One that shows the true amount of forgiveness, and how forgiveness and hope can be healing. Kim Phucâ€™s story is not one that should be thought of in a bad light. It should not be thought of with pity, or as just the girl in the photo. Kim Phuc should be remembered for the work she has done, for the hope and forgiveness she has inspired within thousands, maybe millions of people.
She should be thought of with hope. Her name should be synonymous with inspiration and hope. A most intersting book about the most famous picture of an infamous war. it has been used for four decades as an indictement of America's war crimes. Indeed, use of napalm was horrible, though not illegal. Of course, almost no one chronicled the crimes of the North Vietnamese and Viet Cong.
Oriana Fallaci, the Italian journalist, was one of the few who did so, but her reports were mostly brushed aside. Yet the story the "girl" tells us is a very different one. She was manipulated by Vietnamese propaganda, deprived of her freedom to speak up, and saw no hope for her future. At the first possible opportunity, a stopover in Canada on a flight back from the USSR to Cuba, where she was studying, she fled from communism and chose freedom, capitalism, pluralism.
What is the name of the girl in the picture story is a telling one of the years that followed the Communists' victory in Vetnam. "Liberation" from the Americans' occupation in fact meant indoctrination, brain-washing, distortion of the truth for the purpose of propaganda. All this while Vietnam, paradoxically, was ditching extreme communism and opening up to private enterprise and even new friendly relations with the United States.
Kim Phuc was 9 on 8 june 1972 when her village was napalm bombed by South Vietnamese planes on the orders of the Americans.Many of the villagers of Trang Bang were killed or injured one of whom Kim Phuc had all her clothes burnt and her severely burned.She was photographed running naked away from the flames and became known as "the girl in thw picture" This picture and 2 others of seperate incidents fully documented the horrors and barbarity of war.
Kims story is well written documenting her life in Vietnam,Germany, Russia,Cuba and eventuallyCanada where she sought asylum.Although she was well treated she was ruthlessly exploited for propaganda purposes.The central government treated her well but there was much jealousy from local officials.Abook to be recommended.
unbelievable read! horrific story i might add, though you certainly admire her. interesting take on the vietnam war, certainly paints the americans in a different light to what we are used to seeing with regards to the american version of the vietnam war etc. gives a good account on what life was like in vietnam post american departure from vietnam. a great read and would definitely recommend this book!

1957. Drama. Directed by Don Chaffey. Starring Donald Houston, Patrick Holt and Junia Crawford. George Keefe's policeman brother was murdered four years ago and the killer is still on the loose.
A newspaper hound finds out that a picture sent in to his paper shows a car that was used in a robbery that went wrong.
A policeman was murdered and the case has been unsolved for four years. The picture also shows a blonde who is waving to the person in the car - so the reporter goes in search of her, while the police play a waiting game. The action takes place in September 1956, judging by the calendars and the newspaper headlines. Yet the murder is referred to as having happened four years previously - which would make it 1952.
But the newsstand headline of "West Indies clinch it" which appears on the photograph in question can only refer to August 16th 1950 when the West Indies clinched the last cricket test match at the Oval by beating England and winning the series.
Therefore the murder took place 6 years prior to the action, and not 4 years as stated in the film. A 4 year-old photograph published in the London Evening Echo provides a clue to an unsolved murder - intrepid reporter Deering (Donald Houston) and Inspector Bliss (Partick Holt) are soon hot on the trail of the 'Girl in the Picture'!
Surprisingly good little mystery from the days when you got your money's worth at the pictures (supporting features, etc.!). Check out the bespectacled office boy, Wilfred - he's credited as David Greeves, but is better known as James Booth, probably world famous for his excellent portrayal of Henry Hook in 'Zulu'. Sadly, James Booth passed away in August 2005.The Girl in a Picture Frame Artist Rembrandt Harmenszoon van Rĳn Year 1641 Medium Oil-on-panel Dimensions 105.5 cm × 76 cm (41.5 in × 29.9 in) Location Royal Castle, Warsaw, Poland The Girl in a Picture Frame is a 1641 oil on panel painting by the Dutch artist Rembrandt.
  It is also known as The Jewish Bride and The Girl in a Hat. With The Scholar at the Lectern and Landscape with the Good Samaritan, it is one of three Rembrandt paintings in Polish collections.   It is currently located at the Royal Castle in Warsaw. Its authorship has sometimes been questioned, but was confirmed in 2006.
Contents • 1 Description • 2 History and provenance • 3 Analysis • 4 See also • 5 References Description [ edit ] The sitter is framed by a feigned picture frame of which only the bottom and right side are visible. She wears a dark red, velvet dress, a black hat and pear-shaped pearl earrings. This type of costume is not associated with the fashion of the time. When it appeared in portraits, it was treated as ancient attire that suited well the mythical, historical, oriental or biblical subjects.
Rembrandt often portrayed figures dressed in this manner both in his oil paintings and etchings. It is not a portrait, but a tronie, or a study of a head or half-figure without any significant attributes or action. Rembrandt originally began to paint a different picture — of a woman seated, turned slightly to the left, wearing a dress corresponding to the fashion of the time, with a millstone ruff, and wearing a small bonnet.
The figure was further to the right than the girl in the final version. The portrait of the woman what is the name of the girl in the picture a bonnet was never completed and the panel was reused.
Rembrandt was never known to have reused the support of a started painting for executing a portrait commissioned by a client. Traces of the original composition were detected by x-radiation before the restoration work. The picture underwent restoration at the Conservation Department of the Royal Castle, Warsaw (between May 2005 and March 2006).
The overpainting was removed and where removal was impossible, due to the damage to the original paint layer, it was minimized. Traces of the original composition were detected by x-radiation before the restoration work. The original brushwork, prominent in the texture of the painting, became visible on the chest and the right sleeve once the overpainted fragments were removed.
 History and provenance [ edit ] King Stanisław August Poniatowski bought it and The Scholar at the Lectern in 1777 from Countess Maria Golovkina (widow of Count Friedrich Paul von Kameke) via the art dealer Jakub Triebl. He initially displayed them at the Łazienki Palace in Warsaw and after his death they both passed to Józef Poniatowski who in 1813 left them to his sister Maria Teresa Poniatowska.
In 1815 they were bought by Kazimierz Rzewuski, who gave them to his daughter Ludwika, wife of Antoni Lanckoroński.  They were later owned by the Lanckoroński family. Count Karol Lanckoroński, great art lover, who resided in Vienna, arranged in 1902 for The Girl in the Picture Frame to be exhibited with other Renaissance and Baroque paintings from his collection, in the palace purposely built to house the collection (Jacquingasse 16-18, near Vienna's Botanical Garden).
The Gestapo seized it during World War II, but in 1947, it was returned to its rightful owners and placed in a Swiss bank vault. It was next exhibited in 1994 in an exhibition of the family's artworks at the Royal Castle, Warsaw, after which Karolina Lanckorońska donated the painting to the Royal Castle. It was studied under the Rembrandt Research Project, led by Ernst van de Wetering, who analysed Girl and Scholar three times and in February 2006 confirmed they were painted by Rembrandt.
 They were what is the name of the girl in the picture exhibited at the Rembrandthuis in Amsterdam and the Gemäldegalerie Berlin as a part of "Rembrandt - The Quest of a Genius", an exhibition marking the 400th anniversary of the painter's birth.  Analysis [ edit ] The subject was known as the Jewish Bride from at least 1769. A few other works by Rembrandt portraying women with long, loose hair were given the same title in the 17th century.
According to Jewish tradition, a bride wore her hair loose when signing the marital contract with her fiancé. Ernst van de Wetering argues that the Girl in the Picture Frame is a typical example of Rembrandt’s interest, in the late 1630s and early 1640s, in Trompe-l'œil compositions.
It is also an example of his search for new ways of representing movement. In van de Wetering’s opinion, the present painting is exceptional and can be seen as one of the few works, and possibly their prototype, demonstrating Rembrandt’s short-lived fascination with such questions.  Movement is suggested by the slight withdrawal of the girl's right arm and the arrangement of her right hand as if suspended just above the edge of the illusionistic picture frame.
The pearl earring hanging from her right ear and the fabric of the right sleeve also seem to be in motion. The illusion of breaking up the conventional pictorial space was created by painting the figure in a frame with both hands extending beyond it.
