American Relief for Norway, Inc.:

At a meeting of the Executive Committee of American Relief for Norway, Inc., held June 13, 1945, at the Palmer House, Chicago, on motion of the President, Dr. J. A. Aasgaard, it was unanimously decided that the organization, at the proper time, should issue a publication dealing with its activity, the same to be printed in both Norwegian and English.

The underlying thought was, that such a publication, distributed among libraries in America and Norway, and otherwise made accessible to the public, might help to strengthen and enhance the excellent relations already existing between the two countries.

The English edition was to be printed in 2,000 copies, the Norwegian in 1,500 copies. Dr. A. N. Rygg, a member of the board of directors and well acquainted with its activities, was requested to take charge of the undertaking.

The purpose of the publication has been to give not only a plain presentation of the relief work accomplished for Norway by American Relief for Norway, but also to call attention to what was done by other groups in support of Norway during and after the occupation. Thus the public will receive a complete survey of what American efforts have accomplished for the aid of Norway during these years of distress.

The relief work for Norway lasted six and one-half years and gradually ceased for lack of a pressing need, and also because people were weary of the long drawn-out struggle and needed to catch up on neglected work at home. The majority of clubs, societies, and committees, which had associated themselves with American Relief for Norway, reported for service soon after the invasion and continued until the work could be regarded as finished.

The five years of enemy occupation of Norway were full of anxiety and suspense for those of Norwegian descent in America, and hardly a day did the people and land of our ancestors leave our minds. We followed with bleeding hearts the course of events at the time when everything looked dark.
