Three Amateur Photographs of an Anti-Soviet Street Protest, New York, 1952

By [ANONYMOUS PHOTOGRAPHER]

[New York: 1952]. Three snapshots by an unknown amateur photographer depicting a 1952 street protest against Soviet occupation of the Baltic States. The protesters can be seen carrying placards in front of a large Horn & Hardart warehouse, possibly in lower Manhattan. Signs read "Soviets Out of Lithuania;" "USSR is NOT Russia!;" "Stalin's Gang is not the Russian People;" "Stop Genocide in the Baltic States," etc. The protest would have coincided with the final throttling of the organized resistance movement in Lithuania, following a series of mass deportations to Siberia of Lithuanians and other Baltic dissidents that began immediately following the Second World War and lasted until Stalin's death in 1953. Presumably a localized protest, as we have been able to find no published record of it in contemporary newspaper reports; but an evocative glimpse into Cold War-era sentiments among Americans of Easter-European descent. Three original black-and-white photographs, 4" x 6". Captioned in pencil on versos, "10/15/1952". Fine condition.
