This is the famous guillotine that was brought to Vietnam by the French in the early 20th century and used in a jail on Ly Tu Trong Street. During the Vietnam War with the US, it was transported to all of the provinces to decapitate Vietnamese patriots. The last man who was executed was Mr Hoang Le Kha, member of the Provincial Committee of the Vietnamese Workers' Party in Tay Ninh province in 1960.
