What Do They Really Think of Us?

Side one of a Crusade for Freedom disc prepared for the 1951 Crusade campaign. Narrated by NBC commentator Ben Grauer, it uses emotional interviews with East European refugees who dislike America to justify the need for RFE as well as testimony from displaced persons who praise the U.S. for bringing the message of freedom to those behind the Iron curtain. Lucius D. Clay, National Chairman of the Crusade for Freedom, praises the Radio in the American Sector (RIAS) Berlin as a model for RFE and appeals for contributions to buy additional transmitters. The Freedom Bell in West Berlin is heard at the end of the recording.
