One of my most vivid memories is of walking down Fordham Road one Saturday afternoon when I would have been eight years old and seeing a man holding a huge placard saying how awful the “Nazis” were to Jewish people. That would have been 82 years ago, but it is fresh in my memory. It characterized my whole memory of WWII- not the aggression against the European countries, the bombing of England or the U-boats out in the Atlantic – it was Hitler's horrible treatment of an entire ethnic group. I did the WWII boy-scout thing, had a fancy armband that I wore during “blackouts” collected paper, scrap iron and kitchen fat and got out of school (Hayes) on a beautiful spring day in 1945 (May 8th) when Germany surrendered.
