Major events of WWII

Storyboard Text

  • JEWS
  • With the Nazi rise to power in 1933 caused by disseminating anti-Jewish propaganda, the party ordered anti-Jewish boycotts, staged book burnings, and enacted anti-Jewish legislation. In 1935, the Nuremberg Laws defined Jews by blood and ordered the total separation of "Aryans" and "non-Aryans." 
  • The Holocaust in 1933 was the systematic persecution and murder of approximately six million Jews by the Nazi regime. The Nazis believed that Germans were "racially superior" and Jews were "inferior." During the Holocaust, the Nazis also targeted other groups because of their perceived "racial inferiority": Gypsies, the handicapped and some of the Slavic peoples.
  • When Hitler invaded Poland in September 1939, France and Britain declared war on Germany. After conquering Poland, Germany attacked France. In June 1940, France fell, and the Nazis overran most of the rest of Europe and North Africa. Led by Winston Churchill, Britain was not defeated.
  • D-DAY
  • Following the attack on Peal Harbor, Japanese armies rolled over Southeast Asia, Philippines, and East Indies. The war in the Pacific was fought on land, at sea and in the air. The turning point in the war in the Pacific was in June, 1942 at the Battle of Midway. In a four-day battle fought between aircraft based on aircraft carriers, the U.S. destroyed hundreds of Japanese planes and regained control of the Pacific. The Japanese still fought even after the war in Europe ended.
  • The Battle of Stalingrad in 1942, was the successful Soviet defense of the city of Stalingrad (now Volgograd) in the U.S.S.R. during WWII. It stopped the German advance into the Soviet Union and marked the turning of the tide of war in favor of the Allies. The Battle of Stalingrad was one of the bloodiest battles in history with combined military and civilian casualties of nearly two million.
  • On D-Day, June 6, 1944 , General Dwight Eisenhower led U.S. and Allied troops in an invasion of Normandy, France. The armies fought their way through France and Belgium and into Germany, while Russian troops fought from the east. On May 7, 1945, Germany surrendered.
