Home life

Home Life

Children had to adjust, rather quickly, to many changes in their life during World War two. In Europe, namely London, there were bombings taking place almost every day. Children and their families had to take shelter in the underground bomb shelter that many families had. However, during the blitz of London from 1940-1941, children were accounted for every 1 out of 10 deaths. Because of these bombings, many parents moved their children away from the city and either into manor houses on the countryside, or enrolled them into boarding schools. The parents who were not this fortunate, however sent their children away onto trains. Neither the children, nor the parents knew where they were going, or if they would ever see each other again. Children who stayed back home, had to give up some of their food, called rationing. Families would meet at a place in the city that would provide portions of food and drink to each person in the family.

Physical Damage

The less fortunate children who had to stay back home with their families, were targets for distress. After cities were bombed, the children who came out alive, had many injuries. The fires caused burn marks, the debris that fell on the children caused broken bones and loss of limbs. Gas attacks were prevalent. Therefore, children had to wear gas masks no matter where they went. The masks were heavy and hot, often times unbearable. Children suffered from bruises and other marks from poorly fitting gas masks.


Psychological damage

Psychological Damage

Children who suffered from the direct effects of the

war may never be accounted for. Adults and

authority figures did not think that the psychological

damage was very important. Children experienced

death and saw death much earlier than they should

have, therefore forcing the children to grow up too

quickly. The children were mentally scarred for life

and many needed counseling when the war had

ended. Children also had separation anxiety from

being forcefully displaced from their parents,

friends, and siblings.
