What's it about?

The Second World War was one of the defining events of the last century. The atrocities of the Holocaust, gulags, and the lives lost are something that should never be forgotten. The conflict reshaped European economies and societies—with more women working than ever before, recessions, and societal divides that lasted for decades. These Blinks will help you understand more of what it was like to live through 1939-1945, and how we can stop totalitarianism at its heart to prevent it from reoccurring.
