Program Title SILENT VOICES OF WORLD WAR II: When Sons of the Land of Enchantment Met Sons of the Land of the Rising Sun
Program Description Imagine World War II without the atomic bomb developed at Los Alamos. What if no rapid Navajo code was used which the Japanese could not break? Or, if the New Mexico National Guardsmen had no role in the Philippines? Why were Japanese American civilians interned in Santa Fe? My talk illustrates cultural differences and ironies in wartime, behind barbed wire or at the end of a gun. The talk can be modified for the general audience or for teens to cover any or all of the four topics required for teaching to meet the 9th grade New Mexico history standard: namely, the Manhattan Project, Navajo Code Talkers, NM National Guardsmen, and Santa Fe Camp Internees.
