Guess the collection- ANSWERS!

This image is a tough one to guess! It actually is a very historic image, and comes from our Robert W. Books Collection, which includes a series of materials on Walter Gieseking. In this image, (dated January 25, 1949) people are protesting Walter Gieseking's proposed concert in New York City at Carnegie Hall because he is German. The concert was canceled, and Gieseking was taken into custody by immigration officials.
