Explained: Story of the ‘Napalm Girl’ photo from Vietnam War as it turns 50 | Explained News,The Indian Express

The photo, taken on June 8, 1972, captured a young child running to escape the impact of the Napalm bombing of a Vietnam village by the US forces.

It has been 50 years since Nick Ut, an American-Vietnamese photographer, clicked one of the most defining images of the Vietnam war.

The photo, taken on June 8, 1972, captured a young child running to escape the impact of the Napalm bombing of a Vietnam village by the US forces.

The image that conveyed the brutality of the war then went on to win the Pulitzer Prize.

Notably, Ut helped the child and drove her to the hospital immediately after clicking the photograph, to treat the burns on her skin. The girl in the picture, Kim Phuc Phan Thi, is today an activist for peace and wants her legacy to be about survival.

Writing an opinion piece titled ‘It’s Been 50 Years. I Am Not ‘Napalm Girl’ Anymore’ in The New York Times on June 6, Kim Phuc described her complicated feelings about the image.
