The 1930s timeline offered here provides a tangible list of the decade's events some well-known and others more obscure. Each year in the timeline is divided by months and also by 4 color-coded categories: Politics and Society; Science and Technology; Arts and Culture; and World Events. Many of the items listed for each year will be clickable, offering further information in the form of images, audio, and video. A video "Year in Review" of film clips can be found at the end of each year. Fortunately or unfortunately, a timeline is but a limited glimpse at discrete moments in this decade as such, visitors are invited to draw their own conclusions, make their own comparisons, and visit again frequently as material is constantly being added.
