A beautiful and colorful campaign poster for the "European Recovery Program" also known as the Marshall Plan/Aid.
On September 27, 1951, the "European Train" of "Train of Europe" arrived in Aarhus, Denmark. The train served as an exhibition and its task was to promote a cooperative Europe. In addition to Denmark, the train drove through 17 European countries and had a total number of visitors of over 3 million. The European train was commissioned by The European Recovery Program which was a part of the Marshall Plan Administration.
The Marshall Plan was an American initiative to aid post-war Western Europe in 1947. It is estimated that about a million people was starving in Europe after the war and this is why the Marshall Plan was so important to rebuild Europe. The plan also aided the rebuilding of houses, factories and helped Europe getting back on track - with an abundance of American machines, parts and products.
Overall this is a great political/humanitarian poster which is an important reminder of the necessity of international cooperation.
