<P>New York, NY and Washington, DC – May 15, 2019

In 1939, America was celebrating the end of the Great Depression, the film classics “The Wizard of Oz” and “Gone with the Wind” debuted in theaters, and the New York World’s Fair had the country looking ahead to interstate highways, robots, and a new medium called television. But underneath the joy, darkness was looming as storm clouds filled the skies of Europe and Germany was about to rise.
