1940s / 1940 Olympics Poster
The 1940 Summer Olympics were originally scheduled to be held in Tokyo. With Japan deeply embroiled in the Second World War, those plans were scuttled. The International Olympic Committee opted to move the Games to Helsinki, Finland, as this poster shows. This also proved to be impractical when the Finns began fighting the Russians. The IOC sensibly chose to suspend the Games until the war stopped. (Helsinki hosted the 1952 Summer Olympics. Tokyo got the 1964 Games.)
