As America ventured into the 1930s, the nation was still very much dealing with the repercussions of the Wall Street Crash. The man entrusted to bring an end to the Great Depression was Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Elected in 1933, FDR’s series of programs dubbed “The New Deal” brought relief for the poor, recovery of the economy and reform of the entire financial system. At the end of the decade, and indeed the other side of the world, Adolf Hitler’s own policies, the Nuremberg Laws, were the blueprint for a Nazi revolution which ultimately resulted in the start of the Second World War.
The 1930s also brought notoriety to two famous American pilots: Charles Lindbergh, the first man to ever fly solo between America and Europe, had his infant son kidnapped and murdered in the so-called “Crime of the Century”, before Amelia Earheart, the first female to complete the transatlantic flight, strangely disappeared somewhere over the Pacific Ocean, never to be seen again. Personalise your Washington Post Decade book with a name and special message, which will be printed in a certificate on the title page. The name will also be embossed in gold on the cover, making this the perfect gift for any budding historian.
