Poster Plakat

Poster of the Week

"Long Live the International Day of Young Men. Strengthen the link with the brotherly Communist Union of Young People. Un-mask the preparation for the war against the USSR".

This poster highlights the tenth anniversary of the Communist Youth International (KIM), an organization affiliated with the Communist International. The KIM was tied to communist parties of various countries around the world. In 1943, when the Communist International was dissolved, the KIM was disbanded. After World War II, the World Federation of Democratic Youth was formed to replace the KIM.

The stone plinth seen on this poster reads, "For Lenin’s Internationalism! K.I.M. 10 Years".
