Anyone born in 1930 is a part of the Silent Generation. This name was chosen because the generation's members became adults in the time of political repression. Many of them instead of speaking out their opinion preferred to keep silence. It is a relatively small generation because of the decreased birth rate during the Great Depression and World War II.
