Question from Susan B
Regarding the Cold War and even the Great Depression, so many have made such good contributions on these subjects that I want to suggest an complete article devoted to them.
If you, or your parents or grandparents, went through the Great Depression, what were some of the things that ‘got you by’? What was the attitude towards the hobos that would come to the door for handouts? Did you or yours ever have to get your meals at a soup kitchen? How did you make ends meet with very little or no income coming into the household? Were you or your family forced to leave all behind and ‘hit the road’?
On the Cold War, what memories do you have of that era? Did you and your family live in fear? Did you have a fall out shelter and what was in it? Was your family willing to share the shelter with neighbors? Was there prejudice against those from Slavic countries in your area?
Just a few suggestions to get this ball rolling! Looking forward to all of your comments, fellow Wolfies!
