Through Soviet Eyes: The Marshall Plan at 70!
2017 marks the 70th year of the Marshall Plan, an initiative in which the United States gave over $13 billion in economic support to help rebuild Western European economies after the end of World War II. Many thought The Marshall Plan was a great idea; however, the Soviets, who refused to participate, thought otherwise. The Marshall Center Research Library is fortunate to own three collections of editorial cartoons (1948-1951), highlighting Soviet criticism of the Plan. In conjunction with other events taking place this summer, including an exhibition at the Research Library, you will find posters of these cartoons displayed around Sheridan and Artillery Kaserne.
