After the war there is to many people go to village (refugees) the villages population increase fast but the houses couldn’t increase at the same level, so they had to share home. So that’s didn’t worked for the farmers so they stopped to tell the Nazi how many did they get from the grow, to keep it for them self.
Because there is to many people so some of them start working in industry.
There wasn’t enough food for everyone so they made rations for the people. They gave each person 7oo grams per week the people broke into zoo’s and killed the animals to eat them. There was never a worrying decrees of food.
The parents sent them children out from Germany to scape the bombing made by the allies .
Boys helped the fire services. Delivered post, distributed ration-cards and acted as guides during black-out. Organized collections of metal, bones, kitchen waste, clothing and books.
Girls in kindergartens, old people’s homes and hospitals they helped in whatever way they could. They bought coal and food for the homeless, war windows and refugees. They even formed choirs to entertain the sick and wounded.
