‘Americans and the Nazi Threat: What Did Georgians Know?’
November 1 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pmFree
While media around the country provided frequent and vivid accounts of rising Nazi brutality in Europe, Americans focused inward in the 1930 and ’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.
