During the 1930s and 40s, a wide range of motives, pressures, and fears shaped Americans' responses to Nazism, war, and the persecution and murder of Jews in Europe.

Join United States Holocaust Memorial Museum historian Dr. Edna Friedberg for an exploration of these factors through the lens of local newspapers, historical photographs, and public opinion polls from the era.

Speaker
