What Did Georgians Know?
While media around the country provided frequent and vivid accounts of rising Nazi brutality in Europe, Americans focused inward in the 1930–40s. Step back in time with Museum experts to explore headlines, reactions, and artifacts from that time period in Georgia, including news articles unearthed by volunteer citizen historians. Panelists also will discuss actions taken within local communities, including demonstrations, letters to the editor, and petitions calling for action.
