The first massive humanitarian assistance in history

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