Peace Demonstration, 1941 campus photograph

In 1941, University of Minnesota demonstrators carried signs with national anti-war slogans. The student movement was turning toward support for war after 1939 when Hitler invaded multiple countries in Europe. Nevertheless, a small section of the student movement continued to oppose American involvement in fighting against the Nazis.
