Rusted car hood of the self-immolating monk, Vietnam

The monks of the Thien Mu Pagoda in Hue, Vietnam have displayed the car that Thích Quảng Đức drove to the spot of his self-immolation. Thích Quảng Đức's ultimate protest action in Saigon in 1963 brought international attention to the repressive persecution of Buddhists by the regime then ruling South Vietnam.
