What was life like during the Great Depression?
The 1930s were a difficult time for everyone. The stock market crashed, banks closed, and many people lost their money, their jobs, and their homes. In this engrossing book, children will learn about the daily life of Jewish families during this time—the homes they lived in, the foods they ate, the schools they went to, the work they did, and the games they played.
Jewish Life in America during the Great Depression is part of The Way It Was, a series of fascinating books about everyday Jewish life in American history.
Each volume includes authentic photos and eyewitness accounts, as well as engaging text and design.
