World War II: 1942

Death’s Travels

Prior to 1942…

  • The National Socialist German Worker’s Party (NSDAP), or Nazi Party for short, was gaining popularity among the German people left without jobs after World War I.

  • A young, charismatic leader, Adolph Hitler ran for chancellor of Germany and won.

  • His passion for promoting German nationalism spread. He ordered the military to take over surrounding countries in hopes to increase the size and power of Germany.

WWII: Where the fighting took place

  • German and Italian fought against French, Russian, British and American armies.

  • Most battles occurred in Germany and France, with a second “front” forming along the Russian border


Effects on Civilians

  • Similar to the Hubermanns, people in multiple countries practiced for air raids by gathering in underground shelters.

  • As supplies became more scarce, governments limited the amounts people could buy in a process called rationing. These women are waiting to pick up their rations.

“Soaked bodies of a French Coast”

  • Known in as D-Day, the seize of the beach at Normandy was a first move by the American and British Armies to push Hitler’s army back toward Germany, out of France


Bombing of Cologne

  • The first notable bombing performed by Allied forces on German targets

  • Done to break down the German confidence

Parisians, 1942

  • In 1942, Germany took total control of France

  • Beginning that summer, German soldiers began to round up all of the French Jews and place them in camps, burning them after the gas chamber


The Eastern Front - Russia

  • Germany fought both in France and in Russia. Due the bitter cold, soldiers were often underprepared, which resulted in more deaths outside of battle.
