Join the International Red Aid (Poster 1924)





























































































































The large hand that splits this poster diagonally represents Socorro Rojo Internacional, and serves two important purposes. First, the hand acts as a barrier that shields the frightened boy and girl in the lower left corner from the fascist bomber and the damage it inflicts. Second, the hand, arranged in an non-menacing way, offers the children comfort and peace. The poster dramatically conveys the message that while the fascists bring death and destruction, International Red Aid protects and helps Spain's children.

SRI also offered soldiers in the Fifth Regiment, a communist military unit, the opportunity to send their children to youth homes while they fought the war. International Red Aid's Children's Park at the outskirts of Madrid, housed an additional 150 children away from the front. Much of the food and money that International Red Aid accumulated during its donation campaigns went directly to its programs for children.
