Phan Thi Kim Phúc established the first Kim Phúc Foundation in the United States in 1997.
On this episode of This Day In History, Tony and Armand discuss one of the most famous photos of the 20th century and the young girl who became the face of the Vietnam War. In 1972, Nick Ut captured a photo of nine-year-old Phan Thi Kim Phúc after she had been burned by a napalm bomb dropped on the district of Trang Bang. The photo, “The Terror of War“, would go on to win a Pulitzer Prize and World Press Photo of the Year in 1973, and Phúc would become known as “The Girl in the Picture,” or “Napalm Girl.” Plus, George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four is published in 1949, and Kanye West is welcomed into the world in 1977.
