A 1940's Childhood - From Bomb Sites to Chidren's Hour
Do you remember collecting shrapnel and listening to Children's Hour? Carrying gas masks or sharing your school with evacuees from the city? In the 1940's hardships and fear created by World War II were immense. Children grew up in this decade where food and clothing shortages were a way of life, where they faced the trauma of being parted from their parents but, where they still managed to shine! Through it all, the simplicity of kids playing in bomb -strewn streets and collecting bits of shot-down German aircraft showed just how resourceful children can be in making their own fun! This trip down memory lane will take you through the evocative experiences of growing up in the 1940s.
