"Showing Americans CARE: CARE Packages and the Evolution of U.S. Occupation Policy in Germany" presented by Dr. Andrea O'Brien
Near the end of World War II, some Americans petitioned the government to provide millions of tons of food to their former German enemies. Why should Americans have been so concerned with the fate of their recent enemy, when millions of the U.S.'s European allies were also starving? Dr. O'Brien will discuss the extraordinary role ordinary Americans played in changing U.S. occupation policies in Germany, helping transform early punitive policies into an increased concern with German welfare.
