SUMMARY! The room is so hot it is hard to breathe. My legs ache from pushing the pedals on this machine. My fingers throb from the many times they have been pierced by the needle. I think of home. The cool, green forests. I think of home. No money and no food. The boss shouts at me. I don’t speak much English, so I just pedal harder. How hopeful I was that night as we sailed toward the beautiful statue. On that night, I was so sure that my dream of America was about to come true!. Set in the early 1900s, A Dream of America, follows a young Polish immigrant as she experiences a horrifying journey by sea to New York. She recalls the hours spent under scrutiny on Ellis Island, and while remembering the poverty of her old life, considers whether the loneliness and exhaustion of her new life have been worth the sacrifice. Yesterday’s Voices is a fantastic series that gives older Hi-Lo readers manageable, yet highly sophisticated, thought-provoking historical fiction. Each story will include a spread that gives the reader the factual background to the historical theme or event explored in the story.

"#$$%&'! I look into his eyes. He looks into mine. He is my age. A soldier just like me. The noises of the jungle seem to fade. No more than a second passes, but time stands still. I see Mom’s face. I remember the smell of Donna’s hair. I think of my last words to my brother. I wanted to come here to fight, but he did not. I called him a coward, but tonight it’s me that’s afraid. The young soldier screams at me. I don’t understand what he’s saying. I only know one thing. Tonight, one of us will die in this hellish place!.

Days of Decision Did Hitler order Kristallnacht? Did Kennedy take the advice of his generals? Did events turn out as planned when Gandhi launched the Quit India movement? This ‘turning points’-type series looks at key world leaders and analyses how and why they chose a particular path to follow at critical points in history. It shows how great leaders make decisions about momentous events, and how their major decisions have affected the world we live in.

Kennedy campaigned around the country, introducing his “New Frontier” programme, which aimed to tackle the problems of poverty and racial prejudice, while also exploring space and new areas of science. Kennedy faced several obstacles to being elected president. He was young, he was a Catholic (a minority faith in the United States), and he had never served as a senior member of government. But the American people decided that the time for the New Frontier had arrived, and they elected Kennedy. He and his wife, Jacqueline (known

She refurbished the White House with valuable art and furniture, and invited well-known actors, artists, and intellectuals to visit. As a fluent French speaker with excellent fashion sense, Jackie was warmly welcomed when the Kennedys toured France in 1961. In 1963, Jackie was present in the car when her husband was assassinated, and she bravely stood beside Lyndon B. Johnson as he took over the presidency less than two hours later.

Reducing poverty

Kennedy did not succeed in all areas. He was unable to get health insurance for the elderly or cuts in income tax passed through Congress.12

Civil rights: limited reform President Kennedy’s civil rights programme also fell short. He introduced some laws – for example, in March 1961, he established the President’s Committee on Equal Employment Opportunity. This made it illegal to discriminate (select based on race) when hiring federal workers and denied federal contracts to businesses that practised discrimination. In November 1962, Kennedy brought in a limited law to stop racial segregation in public housing.

The speech Kennedy delivered when he was sworn in as president in January 1961 became part of his legacy. The speech ended with a call for Americans to participate in their country and act as world citizens, rather than expecting their rulers to run society for them. He said:

President Kennedy’s New Frontier speeches led to great expectations of change. The new president achieved some “And so, my fellow Americans: Ask not social welfare reforms what your country can do for you – ask to help poor Americans: what you can do for your country.

The NAACP planned this action, and used Rosa’s arrest to spark a boycott of city buses. After 13 months of lost business and bad publicity, the state made segregation illegal on its buses.

HISTORY DETECTIVES: sources

Actual text size

Diaries, interviews, autobiographies, and photos are primary sources, or records of events created at the time under study. Secondary sources are interpretations and analyses of primary sources. They are usually created by people who weren’t there at the time. Examples include books, biographies, and films. Secondary sources can provide good overviews to direct research, but a range of primary sources can add details and bring the past to life.
