The gathering forces of war were made evident by Jennie in how the pavilions and art expressed what was coming. It was fascinating to see how this World's Fair expressed these forces.

Good review of the gathering forces of the time as represented in the buildings, the art styles and the presentations.
Comprehensive examination of the Worlds Fair leading up to the horrors of WW2. Discussion of the pavilion architecture and
jockeying of which countries’
strength and power were evidenced by the location of their pavilion. Russia and Germany grabbed the most prestigious spots with huge edifices that stated “we are a country that you will have to forcefully deal with”. I learned a great deal even though I was hoping to see advances in technology and products for the foreseeable future at that time. This was not the focus of the 1937 fair.
