Post-WWII - 1946, USA Homefront: Appeal To America To Save Starving Millions Abroad Intertitle: Appeal To America To Save Starving Millions Abroad - President Truman. 11:46:15 Truman speech (Sd): “America is faced w/ a solemn obligation. Long ago we promised to do our full part. Now we cannot ignore the cry of hungry children. Surely we will not turn our backs on the millions of human beings begging for just a crust of bread. Millions will surely die unless we eat less. Again I strongly urge all Americans to save bread and to conserve oils and fats. These are the most essential weapons at our disposal to fight famine abroad. Every ounce of bread, every ounce of fat & oil saved by your voluntary sacrifice will help keep starving people alive”. 11:47:02 Intertitle: Mayor LaGuardia. Speech (Sd): “Czechoslovakia, Poland, Austria, Greece, Yugoslavia, Italy, Albania, China will be without bread in a few days unless we rush boatloads of wheat to these countries. We are ready; we have the boats! We must have the wheat. I appeal desperately to the American farmer. People are dying. Please help.” Post-WW2 Famine; 1940s Relief Appeals;
