How Were British Children Impacted by Wartime Evacuation?

This poster, maintained by Britain's Imperial War Museum, depicts instructions for parents on evacuating their children from the London area to other parts of the country at about the time of the German Blitz.

 

When Britain's evacuated children left their homes, at the beginning of World War II, neither they nor their families knew how long they would be separated.

Do you think the children's fears about the war—and the impact it would have on their friends and loved ones—were lessened or worsened by the evacuation? Explain your answer.
