Biographical history

The Assembly of Captive European Nations was founded on 20 September 1954 as a coalition of representatives from nine nations (Albania, Bulgaria, Czechoslovakia, Estonia, Hungary, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland and Romania) in Central and Eastern Europe under Soviet domination after World War II. Its main office was in New York and its goals were 'to provide liberation from communist dictatorship by peaceful means, to educate public opinion on the actual situation behind the Iron Curtain, and to enlist the cooperation and assistance of governmental and non-governmental institutions'. Funding was provided by the Free Europe Committee and when that organisation suspended financial assistance in January 1972 because of its own budget reductions, the Assembly offices were closed and publication activities ceased.
