Christmas Propaganda

As the Korean War entered its second year, and the second Christmas of the conflict came close, the Chinese government produced Christmas-themed propaganda leaflets to be spread amongst United Nations forces.

This leaflet is from 1951. It would be another year and a half before the war ended.

Whatever the colour, race or creed,

All plain folks are brothers indeed.

Both you and we want life and peace,

If you go home, the war will cease.

Demand Peace!

Stop the War!

Construction in NYC

An image of the United Nations building in New York under construction in 1949. The building was completed in 1952.

The Empire State Building is in the background.

Bizarrely, this image is often said to be the Empire State Building under construction, even though it was completed in 1931, and is clearly visible in the background!
