174 An umbrella organisation

The League was founded by Willy Münzenberg (1889-1940), who was highly adept at forming ‘umbrella organizations’ to support the Comintern policies, from Workers International Relief in 1921 to the Congress of Writers for the Defense of Culture in 1935. At first the League was immensely successful, thanks to the support and interest of nationalists such as Jawaharlal Nehru or Anton de Kom and prominent figures such as Albert Einstein. But when the Comintern became less tolerant, interest quickly dissipated.
