      Founded in Prague in 1946, the International Union of Students (IUS) is an umbrella organization for over 150 student groups in 112 different countries. Originally created to defend students' rights and improve welfare and international standards of education, the group became more politically oriented when the Soviet Union invaded Czechoslovakia in 1948 (so much so that they are often considered a Soviet front organization). These bold, powerful propagandistic images present a broad international collage of causes, events and Congresses that the organization helped arrange or participated in.
