We take a step back in time, to over 80 years ago to World War II, one of the biggest conflicts in human history, which changed modern humanity forever. Learn from Ms. Teresa Rand Bridges' bilingual 5th grade class at Alvarado Elementary, a public school in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

We will hear about where the United States stood, and how the war started in Europe. Students present the story of Anne Franke, and we hear about a Jewish family who escaped thanks to two teenage penpals. This piece is from the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum.

The kids in Ms. Rand Bridges' class explain how the United States came to enter the war, when a military outpost in Hawaii was bombed by the Japanese military. After Pearl Harbor, over 120,000 Japanese-Americans were imprisoned from March 1942 to November 1945. Producers Robin Amer and Jesse Seay talked with some of their survivors who were themeselves children in that long incarceration, from Listenwise Students.

The students teach us about the role women played in the war, including teaching about Victory Gardens in a bilingual piece. Then we learn about the arsenal of weapons, ships and aircraft used by the Allied and Axis forces. World War II was the most deadly conflict ever in human history, with nearly 52 million people killed worldwide.

World War II came to an end on September 2, 1945, when the final treaty was signed between the Americans and Japanese. The kids in Ms. Rand Bridges' class are from the place where the nuclear bomb was developed and tested. They cover nuclear weapons and the part they played at the end of the war.
All the music we play in this episode either teaches about World War II or is from that era.

This episode was recorded by Terese Rand Bridges at the Alvarado Elementary School in Albuquerque, New Mexico and produced by Senior Producer, Christina Stella with help from Producer Rodrigo Cuenca and Katie Stone, our Executive Producer.
