(Re)connecting Brooklyn’s History: Brooklyn’s Homefront During World War II

Open to: All Teachers
Opportunity at a Glance: The history and legacy of the World War II can be seen all around us in Brooklyn.  Once home to hundreds of factories, shipyards, and warehouses, and responsible for sending millions of service members off to the front lines, Brooklyn was arguably one of the most important communities in waging and winning the war. During this session participants will learn about the following:

  • Labor, housing, and culture; and
  • Primary source documents and oral histories.

This program will help illuminate Brooklynites’ experience of World War II.
