Former First Lady of South Vietnam, Madame Nhu Dies at age 87

by Lindsay Whitacre

Considered by some to be the first lady of South Vietnam in the late 1950s Madame Nhu was a polarizing figure.

In this 1982 interview, Madame Nhu states that the Diem government was the only legitimate government in South Vietnam and they were undermined by the United States. She also discusses the Buddhist Crisis of 1963 and her reputation as the “Dragon Lady” of Vietnam.
