The Thirties started just months after the Wall Street Crash of 1929, which had set the tone for a decade of struggle amidst the Great Depression. Drought in the Midwest is a catalyst in the formation of the Dust Bowl, with dramatic wind erosion that strips away the top soil on farms and motivates many to move west, where they become migrant workers and are derisively known as "Okies" after the many families who came from Oklahoma. In Germany, post-war instability and the Depression itself facilitated the rise of Nazism and authoritarian leader Adolf Hitler, culminating in the outbreak of World War II towards the end of the decade. Yet despite troubled times, the thirties saw great technological advances. Ferdinand Porsche developed the Volkswagen Beetle, frozen foods were sold for the first time, and scotch tape and chocolate chip cookies came into existence. Amelia Earhart became an aviation pioneer and the first woman to pilot a solo flight across the Atlantic. Radio becomes the dominant form of entertainment, and President Franklin D. Roosevelt's fireside chats become a staple of American culture. Swing music becomes popular, while Technicolor and 'talkies' come to the silver screen - where acts such as Laurel & Hardy and the Marx Brothers helped us to forget our worries in a decade that saw us grow despite the shadow of the depression.
