During the 1930s and 1940s, a range of motives, pressures, and fears shaped Americans’ responses to Nazism, war, and the persecution and murder of Jews in Europe. Join 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.
