Centennial of the United States – Montenegro Partnership

After World War I, the U.S. Red Cross was the first foreign organization that came to Montenegro to aid the people in the war-torn country. Alongside American volunteers – doctors and nurses – came photographers. Here, we present a small portion of their extensive photo collection, inspired by the untouched nature of Montenegro, but also by the courage and resilience of its people. One hundred years ago and now, the United States and Montenegro stand together in solidarity.
