We are in Moscow 1957 when the city held the VI World Festival of Youth and Students which became one of the brightest events in the after-war history of the city, the symbol of  a new time beginning. 34 000 people from 131 countries came to Moscow then. Here we present some color photos of the event.

    “American delegates are singing at the stadium of Lenin.” Let’s hope the songs were: “Joe Hill,” “1913 Massacre,” and “The Ballad of Sacco and Vanzetti.”

    I wonder who sponsored the American delegation. They dont look like trade unionists. Maybe a left wing students group?
