A Female Mason Perched High above Berlin, circa 1910 “With the rise of industrialization, the number of German women who worked outside the home also increased. This usually meant factory work. But in some families with their own businesses, daughters also learned a trade so that they could help out: here, we see a master-mason’s daughter during the renovation work on the old city hall tower in Berlin.”

Heartbreaking moment in history. Jesse & Ruth Owens arrive home from the 1936 Berlin Olympics. Son of a sharecropper and grandson of slaves, Owens won a record 4 gold medals in the very presence of Adolph Hitler. Owens said, “When I came back to my native country... I couldn’t ride in the front of the bus. I had to go to the back door. I couldn’t live where I wanted. I wasn’t invited to shake hands with Hitler, but I wasn’t invited to the White House to shake hands with the President, either.”
