Fair Winds and Winds of War is framed by the February 2nd pro-Nazi rally in Madison Square Garden and the optimism of the April opening of the New York World’s Fair. An American-born woman believes she has lost her ‘favorite daughter’ position to her cousin, a refugee from newly-German-occupied Gdansk in Poland. Their personal conflict reflects the larger conflict in the U.S. between Americans and the Europeans looking for a safe haven. An African-American singer, facing the racism that forced her from her Southern hometown and later from the segregated Harlem venues, finds acceptance in 1930’s Greenwich Village and friendship with the Polish refugees. Two women, one a refugee, meet again in New York and rekindle the love for each other they discovered as teenagers in Poland. As Europe rushes to war, America anticipates the excitement of the NY World’s Fair.
