World During the 1930's


Adolf Hitler

Adolf Hitler(1889-1945) was one of the most important people in history. He was the person who led German and its allies into World War II, killing millions especially Jews. I wrote about Hitler for the reason that he was one of the main cost of World War II.

Mahatma Gandhi

Mahatma Gandhi(1869-1948) was the most important Indian political and spiritual leader during the 20th century. He led India to its independence from Britain and influenced people throughout the world. I chose to write about this man because Indians look up to him, for he was the man who fought for the rights of others and leading them to doing what they believe was right.

Albert Einstein

Albert Einstein(1875-1955) was one of the most famous inventors ever known in history. He was born in Germany and contributed to physics, making many theories about our modern understanding of energy and matter. Because Einstein is the genius father of science who had discovered the unknown, I consider him as one of the most important people in history.

The Great Depression

The Great Depression, also called "The Dust Bowl" began in 1929 but lasted a throughout the 1930's in America. During this decade of downfall people had to migrate to other countries because there was an economic crisis, which affected everyone all over America. I decided to write about this great period of event in history, because the Great Depression spreading on such a huge countries as America it too greatly affects rest of the economy in the world.

The Salt March occurred on March 12, 1930 in India. It was a march to the sea led by Ganghi, intending to manufacture salt as an act of resistance to the British government over their control on salt production.

Technological Improvements

Radio Telescope

In 1933, Edwin Howard Armstrong invented the First Frequency Modulation radio (FM radio). It was only later on July 1936 that Armstrong was granted with license for his FM station. I believe that hearing understandable sounds from a machine is a large step of technological improvement in our world, and for this reason I've decided to write about it.

In 1934, Philo Farnsworth invented the first television. He was an American engineer who later set up "Farnsworth Radio and Television Corporation" in 1938. I wrote about the first television ever made because it has become a significant factor of home entertainment at present and it is nice to know how it came to be.

Famous Book

Of Mice and Men

The book called "Of Mice and Men" was written by John Steinbeck and published in 1937. It was one of the most famous books written in the decade. The book is about two men during the Great Depression which was occuring at the same time while Steinbeck was writting Of Mice and Men. Because this book is so famous that it had been chosen for RIS ninth grade students to read, I chose to write about this novel.
