Why Not Peace with Hitler? Anti-War Protest in NYC, July 7 1941

Demonstrators advocating for non-intervention outside a civic building, bearing messages such as “Supplying Britain lengthens the conflict”; “Avoid entanglements in South American, European, and international conflicts”; “The Lend-Lease policy costs lives”; “Without being provoked by Hitler, why engage in hostility?”; “Is negotiating peace with Hitler not an option?”; “Advocating continental autonomy: Europe for its inhabitants, America for its citizens”; “Refrain from European involvement…”

Individuals are seen standing on a city street, with one person prominently holding a sign reading “HITLER has not attacked us WHY ATTACK HITLER?” alongside another sign stating “WHY NOT PEACE with HITLER?”
