League of Nations: Disarmament

Materials from the League of Nations Archives on Disarmament.


Alois Derso (1888-1964) and Emery Kelen (1896-1978) were two internationally famous caricaturists who worked at the  League of Nations  for fifteen years. Both were of Hungarian origin and arrived in  Switzerland  after the First World War, where they drew caricatures of the  League of Nations  delegates and politicians, as well as significant events such as the Disarmament Conference.
