Doloi Negramotnost’ (Down with Illiteracy) Publishing, Moscow

On June 19, 1920, the Sovnarkom of the RSFSR established the All Russian Extraordinary Commission for the Liquidation of Illiteracy. A "Down with Illiteracy" movement was developed under a semi-independent banner in 1923 to assist the Commission and help teach the population to read in their native languages.
