Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Birthday

To observe the anniversary of the 32nd US President Franklin Delano Roosevelt and the US President's Day the Window on America Center (Dnipropetrovsk, Ukraine) presented to the patrons a book and portrait display 'Franklin Delano Roosevelt’. 
A democrat and an outstanding personality, he is the only US President who was elected for four presidential terms. F. Roosevelt became president during the Great Depression in the USA. He started major industrial projects to revive the US economy and to reform social programs. These actions made him very popular among the US population. 
Books and illustrations from the WOA’s collection show FDR in the family circle. His wife Eleanor Roosevelt was a very socially active First Lady. She encouraged her husband to build a political career, helped him to overcome illness and was always engaged in charity.
