Today we talked about love. Then we analyzed how the war effort brought the United States out of the Great Depression. We looked at the propaganda the United States government used to support this effort, including attempts to demonize Germans and the Japanese. We saw growing sentiment for the war in the United States, mainly based on this propaganda, including Popeye the Sailorman. Monday we will look at a dark part of American history, Japanese internment.
Your homework this weekend is to critically read the section from Unbroken that was passed out in class.
