Our memories depend on our age group - and our historical library! I was a teenager during the 1930s so that's "old." Like most teens, was pretty "smart." With radio, movie newsreels and newspapers I kept up with world news. I heard the actual voices and saw images of the famous and notorious of that time, Roosevelt, Churchill, Hirohito's "peace envoys," Chamberlain's "peace in our time," Hitler, Mussolini and many others. Newspaper headlines and photos were vivid for my generation. Hey, I had one of the first personal, portable radios. The size of a ladies' very small purse. As attached to me as today's cell phone. So the following are not "opinions" but facts, based on m actual experiences.
