Hồ Chi Minh in Newhaven: From pastry chef in East Sussex to patriotic leader of Vietnam. Ho Chi Minh worked as a pastry chef on the Newhaven-Dieppe ferry in the years following the First World War. He has been credited with helping his country break free of its colonial masters and criticised for his part in a conflict that killed a million of his compatriots. But one thing the former Vietnamese Communist leader Ho Chi Minh is rarely celebrated for is his role as a pastry chef in East Sussex. Ho Chi Minh whose name means “bringer of light”. The influential leader of North Vietnam who also worked in London and Paris, where he co-founded the French Communist party before returning to his native Vietnam in 1923 – formed his political beliefs while travelling in Europe, including a brief spell in Moscow at Comintern, an organisation created by Lenin to promote worldwide revolution. (taken from the independent)
