A Night at The Garden


On February 20, 1939, 20,000 gathered at Madison Square Garden in New York City to celebrate the rise of Nazism.

Film producer Marshall Curry worked with an archivist to pull together the clips of footage to tell a cohesive story. Not surprisingly, it looks eerily similar to today’s events with some Americans succumbing to such evil. Said Curry:

 They attack the press, using sarcasm and humor. They tell their followers that they are the true Americans (or Germans or Spartans or…). And they encourage their followers to “take their country back” from whatever minority group has ruined it.

History is a GIF loop.
