The Jewish people suffered a severe decline in their economic and social conditions and their citizenship, businesses and homes were confiscated. For these reasons, the Jews fled Syria and scattered to foreign lands. Elie's fat... View more info

World War II served as a rallying call in Asheville and Western North Carolina, putting the citizens back to work. Asheville's two strongest economic sectors, tourism and medicine; its beautiful isolation; and advanced hospitals served the nation's needs during the Second World War. The United States secreted German and Japanese businessmen, federal agencies, and valuable art in these mountains, and recuperating soldiers found solace in the camps and inns. Meanwhile our citizens-black and white men, women, and children-offered themselves up for service. Images of America: Asheville and Western... View more info
