« back to classes page
The period between the wars was a time of great change. What was it like for our parents, grandparents, and great-grandparents living
through it? While considering the major events of the period, our focus will be on the social and cultural aspects and how the people
who lived through this short 20-year period experienced it. This period presages our own time in many ways. We will consider the speed of change including technology, fashion, entertainment, and cataclysmic weather to gain a better understanding of what life was like for those who embraced and endured it.
