Do you remember the war? Do you know what happened in your own community in 1939-45? This talk is based on two projects linking the interest and enthusiasm of primary school children with the experiences and memories of older residents of WW2. Using material gleaned from oral history interviews, official documents held by The National Archives and local sources including school logbooks, we recreate what it felt like to be a local child or an evacuee in the war years. Illustrated with archive photos and sound recordings.Views: 136 | Enquiries: 4
I’m a local historian with a special interest in helping individuals and groups to use everyday sources to create their own community histories.
