The first massive humanitarian assistance in history

During the liberation of the Western Czechoslovakia by US Army, General Patton brought humanitarian aid worth 261 million dollars. It was called “UNRRA”, financed by USA, Canada, Great Britain and others (future UN founding members). It was the first project of massive international humanitarian and development assistance in history. Starting another occupation, this time by communist Russia, it was banned to talk about “UNRRA” for decades. #lestweforget #remember #remembranceday
