Title

Lest We Perish

Description

The American Committee for Relief in the Near East (ACRNE), as it was then known, raised funds for Middle Eastern and African countries. In the early 20th century nearly one thousand Americans volunteered to travel overseas and raised more than $100 million for direct relief. This specific poster refers to the Armenian genocide of 1915-1923.
Text of the poster reads "Lest we Perish: Campaign for $30,000,000. American Committee for Relief in the Near East."
