UNRRA poster for war relief programs

Object | Accession Number: 2004.20.2

Large lithographic poster acquired by Raymond Fadner when he worked as a statistician for the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation Administration (UNRRA) in Washington, DC, in 1945-1947. It illustrates the needs of survivors of the war and the relief measures administered by UNRRA. UNRRA was established on November 9, 1943, to provide economic assistance to liberated areas after the war. In 1945-1946, UNRRA was active in repatriating refugees and managing displaced persons camps in Austria, Germany, and Italy. The agency was shut down due to a lack of funding in 1947.
