The Manhattan Project
  • Los Alamos Laboratory, known as Project Y, was
    conceived during the early part of World War II.
    The United States wanted to build an atomic
    explosive to counter the threat posed by the
    German nuclear development program. The term
    Manhattan Project came about because the program
    began under the Manhattan Engineering District of
    the War Department.

  • Physicists, chemists, metallurgists, explosive
    experts and military personnel converged on the
    isolated plateau. At times, six Nobel Prize
    winners gathered with the other scientists and
    engineers in the weekly colloquia put on by
    Robert Oppenheimer. Meanwhile, the Army was
    charged with supporting the work, building
    buildings, keeping the commissary supplied, and
    guarding the top-secret work.

  • The scientists and engineers labored on for two
    years. They carried out experiments in metallurgy
    and high explosives. Finally, on July 16, 1945,
    at 530 a.m., an incredible burst of light
    exploded over the desert in south central New
    Mexico. Trinity, as the test shot was known,
    answered many of the questions the scientists had
    been asking. The bombs yield, equivalent of
    18,000 tons of TNT, astounded even the scientists
    who had spent years making painstaking

Truman Makes a Decision
  • Atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima on Aug. 6
    and on Nagasaki on Aug. 9. Five days later, the
    Emperor of Japan agreed to an unconditional
    surrender. World War II formally ended on Sept.
    2, 1945, when treaties were signed aboard the USS
    Missouri. The Manhattan Project, a mission to end
    the war through the use of atomic weapons, had
    accomplished its goal.

The Atomic Bombing of Hiroshima
  • At 245 a.m. on Monday, August 6, 1945, a B-29
    bomber, the Enola Gay, took off from Tinian, a
    North Pacific island in the Marianas, 1,500 miles
    south of Japan

  • On a hook in the ceiling of the plane, hung the
    ten-foot atomic bomb, "Little Boy.".
    Approximately fifteen minutes into the flight
    (300 a.m.), Parsons began to arm the atomic
    bomb it took him fifteen minutes. Parsons
    thought while arming "Little Boy" "I knew the
    Japs were in for it, but I felt no particular
    emotion about it."

  • On August 6, 1945, the first choice target,
    Hiroshima, was having clear weather. At 815 a.m.
    (local time), the Enola Gay's door sprang open
    and dropped "Little Boy." Approximately 70,000
    died immediately from the explosion and another
    70,000 died from radiation within five years.

The Atomic Bombing of Nagasaki
  • While the people of Japan tried to comprehend the
    devastation in Hiroshima, the United States was
    preparing a second bombing mission. The second
    run was not delayed in order to give Japan time
    to surrender, but was waiting only for a
    sufficient amount of plutonium-239 for the atomic
    bomb. On August 9, 1945 only three days after the
    bombing of Hiroshima, another B-29, Bock's Car
    left Tinian at 349 a.m.

  • At 1102 a.m., the atomic bomb, "Fat Man," was
    dropped over Nagasaki. The atomic bomb exploded
    1,650 feet above the city.

  • Approximately 40 percent of Nagasaki was
    destroyed.. With a population of 270,000,
    approximately 70,000 people died by the end of
    the year.

VJ Day
  • Victory over Japan Day is a name chosen for the
    day on which Japan surrendered, in effect ending
    World War II, and subsequent anniversaries of
    that event. The term has been applied to both of
    the days on which the initial announcement of
    Japans surrender was madeto the afternoon of
    August 15, 1945, in Japan, and, because of time
    zone differences, to August 14, 1945as well as
    to September 2, 1945, when the signing of the
    surrender document occurred, officially ending
    World War II.

The Holocaust
  • Holocaust (holocaust) n -   
  • Great destruction resulting in the extensive loss
  • of life, especially by fire
  • 2. Greek word that means burnt whole or
  • consumed by fire

  • Let us learn that this may never happen again!
  • Daniels Story
  • What was the Holocaust?

Holocaust Victims
  • 6 million Jews
  • 1.5 million children under 12
  • Other Undesirables
  • 5 million

In the beginning.
  • The Nuremberg Laws
  • At the annual party rally held in Nuremberg in
    1935, the Nazis announced new laws which
    institutionalized many of the racial theories
    prevalent in Nazi ideology. The laws excluded
    German Jews from Reich citizenship and prohibited
    them from marrying with persons of "German or
    related blood."

The Nuremberg Laws
  • The Nuremberg Laws, as they became known, did not
    define a "Jew" as someone with particular
    religious beliefs. Instead, anyone who had three
    or four Jewish grandparents was defined as a Jew,
    regardless of whether that individual identified
    himself or herself as a Jew or belonged to the
    Jewish religious community

And then.
  • In 1937 and 1938, the government set out to
    impoverish Jews by requiring them to register
    their property and then by "Aryanizing" Jewish

The Final Solution
The Nazis established ghettos in occupied Poland.
Polish and western European Jews were deported to
these ghettos. During the German invasion of the
Soviet Union in 1941, mobile killing squads
(Einsatzgruppen) began killing entire Jewish
communities. The methods used, mainly shooting or
gas vans, were soon regarded as inefficient and
as a psychological burden on the killers
Being forced from their home
Badges of Hate
The Final Solution
  • In January 1942, the Nazis began the systematic
    deportation of Jews from all over Europe to six
    extermination camps established in former Polish
    territory -- Chelmno , Belzec, Sobibor,
    Treblinka, Auschwitz-Birkenau, and Majdanek.
    Extermination camps were killing centers designed
    to carry out genocide. About three million Jews
    were gassed in extermination camps.

The Final Solution
  • In its entirety, the "Final Solution" consisted
    of gassings, shootings, random acts of terror,
    disease, and starvation that accounted for the
    deaths of about six million Jews -- two-thirds of
    the total population of Jews living in Europe,

The U. S. Homefront
  • After the December 7, 1941, life across the
    country was dramatically altered. Food, gas and
    clothing were rationed. Communities conducted
    scrap metal drives.

  • From the outset of the war, it was clear that
    enormous quantities of airplanes, tanks,
    warships, rifles and other armaments would be
    essential to beating Americas aggressors. U.S.
    workers played a vital role in the production of
    such war-related materials. Many of these workers
    were women. Indeed, with tens of thousands of
    American men joining the armed forces and heading
    into training and into battle, women began
    securing jobs as welders, electricians and
    riveters in defense plants. Until that time, such
    positions had been strictly for men only.

The U. S. Homefront
  • To help build the armaments necessary to win the
    war, women found employment as electricians,
    welders and riveters in defense plants. Japanese
    Americans had their rights as citizens stripped
    from them. People in the U.S. grew increasingly
    dependent on radio reports for news of the
    fighting overseas. And, while popular
    entertainment served to demonize the nations
    enemies, it also was viewed as an escapist outlet
    that allowed Americans brief respites from war

  • A woman who toiled in the defense industry came
    to be known as a Rosie the Riveter... One of
    the women employed at the factory, Rose Will
    Monroe (1920-97), was a riveter involved in the
    construction of B-24 and B-29 bombers.

What was rationed?
  • All these things were rationed, which meant you
    were only allowed to buy a small amount. The
    government introduced rationing because certain
    things were in short supply during the war, and
    rationing was the only way to make sure everyone
    got their fair share.
  • During the Second World War, you couldn't just
    walk into a shop and buy as much sugar or butter
    or meat as you wanted, nor could you fill up your
    car with gasoline whenever you liked.

  • War ration books and tokens were issued to each
    American family, dictating how much gasoline,
    tires, sugar, meat, silk, shoes, nylon and other
    items any one person could buy.

Japanese Relocation Camps
  • In 1942 President Roosevelt signed a bill
    ordering Japanese Americans to go to internment
    camps. About 110,000 Japanese Americans were
    placed in internment camps which were very much
    like a prison. They were guarded by a guard with
    a weapon and encased in barbed wire.

Tuskegee Airmen
  • "Tuskegee Airmen" refers to the men and women,
    African-Americans and Caucasians, who were
    involved in the so-called "Tuskegee Experience",
    the Army Air Corps program to train African
    Americans to fly and maintain combat aircraft.
  • The Tuskegee Airmen included pilots, navigators,
    bombardiers, maintenance and support staff,
    instructors, and all the personnel who kept the
    planes in the air.

The United Nations
  • The United Nations (UN) is an intergovernmental
    organization established on 24 October 1945 to
    promote international co-operation. A replacement
    for the ineffective League of Nations, the
    organization was created following the Second
    World War to prevent another such conflict. At
    its founding, the UN had 51 member states there
