2019 is the 100th anniversary of the end of The Great War – World War I. In recognition of that, Amelia Lifelong Learning offers a special short course to explain how the Great War ended and how the Paris Peace talks of 1919, including the Treaty of Versailles, resulted in the creation of a world destined for an even greater disaster – what Winston Churchill called the Thirty Years War of the 20th Century.
This class provides a bridge between the WWI class in fall 2018 and the WWII class being offered in Spring 2019. It is not necessary to have taken the WWI class to benefit from this special short class. The WWII class will cover major areas such as the failure of Democracy and the rise of Fascism, America First, U.S. Internment Camps, espionage, the Holocaust, Halsey’s Typhoon, use of Atomic Bombs, Allied conferences, and the Nuremberg and other post-war trials.
The class meets Tuesdays January 22 and January 29 from 6-8 pm at St. Peter’s Church. The course fee is $25. There are no materials to be purchased.
