We come back for a barbecue and some ice cream.  The wind kicks up, and the kids all ride their bikes and trikes and little cars to the middle school to fly Spencer’s kite.  We have an obnoxiously ambitious Memorial Day lesson, which actually works out.  We hear about Hitler from Tex Avery and Spike Jones, then watch the opening of Triumph of the Will.  We have quotes from William Shirer about Nazi intimidation, the depravity of race and the final solution.  Then there are horrors from Elie Wiesel, Anne Frank’s prophecy, London Can Take It, Listen to Britain (and where’s Mozart from?), Flanders Fields, Captain Moroni.  Clusters and montage, and everyone about ready to drop off by the end.
