National Council of AmericanSoviet Friendship [Hits: 174]  Discuss on forum [0]

The 1930s witnessed the birth of the AmericanSoviet friendship movement which revolved around the Friends of the Soviet Union, founded in 1929. One of the major goals of the movement was for the United States and the Soviet Union to form an anti-fascist alliance. This eventually led to the foundation of the NCSR, which became the NCASF in 1941. The Council's membership was largely made up of professionals sympathetic to socialism and communism. [Wiki]
