Documentary – 1933

1933 was dark all over the world.

Japan was already in Manchuria, and the League of Nations was dying in

In Italy, Benito Mussolini had translated a people’s search for security into

Capitol on that raw afternoon of March 4th, and a nation with 15 million
unemployed…listened.
