All of these people and their various efforts towards the war, show that the war was truly a joint effort. All three of these people probably had no direct ties to each other but they all managed to make an impact on others through their efforts of publicizing the war and working towards a solution. Each of their unique stories convey the extent to which the war affected numerous people. World War II affected people from all different backgrounds and ultimately changed the United States. Learning about these unique individuals furthered my understanding of the extent that the war affected everyone, and not just those who served and those who were in the Holocaust. These stories truly show that everyone can make a difference in the world just by sharing their story and speaking up for what they believe in.
