Abstract:

The preparation for the Red Cross Centenary celebration was intense. The most fruitful part of this preparation, the one that brought out clearly the principles and the lessons of the movement and the reasons for its surviving the wear and tear of time; the one that most effectively aroused love for and unity in the Red Cross and in the humanity it stands for and therefore won for it more adherents was the enor­mous quality literature about the movement that both the In­ternational Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the League of Red Cross Societies produced and distributed all over the world. It seems that nothing in their libraries and archives was left unscanned in their effort to give out a true and complete image of the Red Cross at the age of one hun­dred.
