Summary
The 1920's found Americans enjoying the fruits of a new prosperity as the country surged ahead in a post-war boom. Then, in 1929, the unthinkable happened: the New York Stock Exchange crashed. From Europe and the United States to Latin America and Asia, the Great Depression shattered economies and communities around the world. In this program, the people who were there remember the blow felt around the world as workers recall the hungry '30s
