The Girl in the Picture: The Story of Kim Phuc, the Photograph, and the Vietnam War - Denise Chong The photo of Kim Phuc running from her village horribly burned is one of those photos that just about everyone would have seen. It has been used widely by anti-war protestors and the communist government of Viet Nam in propaganda. Sadly what is lost in the iconic image is that Kim Phuc is a real person. This is her story and it follows her life through her recovery and constant treatment of the medical issues brought on by her burns, to the way she has been manipulated and used as a tool for propaganda and finally to her defection to the West and her life in Canada. It's ultimately an uplifting story about a woman who manages to find it in her heart to forgive and move on with her life.
