history

What was 1943 known for ?

  • People in 1943 lived under the shadow of Adolf Hitler and Goering’s advancing Luftwaffe. World War Two reached its fourth year of pitched battle on the European front.
  • The babies born in this tumultuous time commonly had the name James or Mary. Some famous people born in 1943 include RL Stine, Bobby Fischer, John Kerry, Mick Jagger, Robert De Niro, and Christopher Walker. The world population sat at just over 2.4 billion.
  • Regardless of the wartime conflict, books and movies continued to be produced. The most popular novels at the time were A Tree Grows in Brooklyn, The Little Prince, and Ayn Rand’s The Fountainhead. Three top movies of 1943 were For Whom the Bell Tolls, Heaven Can Wait, and Cabin in the Sky. The world of physics and the world of children’s books lost two greats with the deaths of Nikola Tesla and Beatrix Potter. Outside of the battlefield, plenty of historical items happened in 1943.
  • The year 1943 was a first for many things: the first woman in the Marine Corps, the first missing person telecast, the first jet fighter tested, the first use of refillable aerosol spray, and the first modern use of the word autism. In addition, Franklin Delano Roosevelt made history by being the first president to visit a foreign country in wartime after making a trip to Morocco. In this year, war leadership saw drastic changes as Roosevelt appointed Eisenhower to command the allied forces. While France recognized the independence of Lebanon and Italy surrendered to the allies, Hitler declared Berlin free of Jews. This year saw the Nazis acknowledge their first failure on the war front at the Battle of Stalingrad. Regardless of this substantial German loss, World War Two would continue for two additional years. Even if you’re tired of hearing about World War Two, all you fans of Rand’s objectivism and bug spray owe some thanks to 1943.
