After President Ho Chi Minh’s Call for National Resistance movement (19 December 1946), Cau Den hamlet (now Sau hamlet, Quang Tien commune, Tan Yen district) became an evacuation area for famous revolutionary writers and artists including Nguyen Hong, Kim Lan, Ngo Tat To, Nguyen Huy Tuong, Nguyen Dinh Thi, Do Nhuan, Tran Van Can and Ta Thuc Binh to continue their creative career serving the resistance war.
Currently, the house of writer Nguyen Hong is being preserved and embellished by his second son Nguyen Vu Giang. On his death anniversaries, a number of domestic and foreign writers, artists and visitors visit the house to pay tribute to the writers and artists who used to live here and created eternal works serving the national resistance war.
