The Diary of Dang Thuy Tram
On his journey to discover Vietnam, Ted Engelmann picked up every story and kept memories of the people he had the chance to meet. It is a celebration with the family of the doctor - martyr Dang Thuy Tram. Ted said he learned about the diary when attending a seminar on the Vietnam War held in the US. At the seminar, a veteran named Frederic Whitehurst spoke about the diary he had during the raid in Duc Pho (Quang Ngai) in 1970. During that raid, Frederic recognized the remains of an amnesty. Liberation, left with the wounded, left a small notebook, the size of a tape recorder among the ashes. The American soldier did not destroy it when the Vietnamese translator named Hieu said: Do not burn, there is already fire in that book. After learning about the diary with the same name and a short address line: "Doctor Dang Ngoc Khue (Dr. Tram's father) works at Dong Anh Hospital", Ted contacted Quaker (USA) in Vietnam. Nam asked them to help find the owner's family.
He was the first person, in 2005, to bring to the family of martyrs Dang Thuy Tram a CD containing pictures of the diary, exploding the emotional story of this female martyr - this doctor. Like the Whitehursts, Tram's family always considered Engelmann as a relative. For more than 35 years in the past, the diary of Dr. Dang Thuy Tram finally returned to her family. No one in the small room could hold his heart as he flipped through the pages and saw the thin, italic handwriting. Ted Engelmann could not hide his heart: “I really have a very special feeling when I meet Dr. Dang Thuy Tram's mother and her relatives.
