Nobel Peace Prize Ceremony held in USA

Thursday, Nov.9, 1944

For the first time ever, the Nobel Peace Prizes were not awarded in Sweden. The war made that impossible, so ceremonies were held in New York City. One of the winners was the Red Cross, the second time it has won the prize. Another bunch of letters came from Grandma and Grandpa. Poor Grandma got laryngitis campaigning for Roosevelt — talking to everyone who came into the store!
