1941: Mass Murder
 pg. 217 
The famed American pilot Charles A. Lindbergh (left) testifies before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee. Enamored with Adolf Hitler and the Nazi movement, Lindbergh opposed the Lend-Lease Bill, which would have extended military aid to Great Britain. In a speech in Iowa in September 1941, Lindbergh said Anglophiles and Jews were trying to pressure the U.S. into war. Before Pearl Harbor was bombed, the antiwar movement in the United States had many supporters.

The sign reads: "Plague Area: Only Through Passage Is Allowed." This sign at the entrance to the Warsaw Ghetto kept curious onlookers from getting a close look at the horrible conditions within the ghetto.

Three Dutch Jews, arrested for the murder of a Dutch Nazi named Koot, are forced to pose with their weapons in front of an Amsterdam police station on February 11, 1941.

Nazi sympathizers in Oslo, Norway, stand beneath a banner that reads, "With Quisling for Norway." As leader of the homegrown collaborationist movement, Vidkun Quisling worked closely with the Nazis following the defeat of Norway in the spring of 1940. In a radio broadcast in April, he announced that he was the prime minister of the new government, though the Nazis soon removed him from that post.
