Transcript of Evacuation of British Children during WWII

Evacuation of British Children during WWII
design by Dóri Sirály for Prezi
Why Evacuate?
- They evacuated children because of World War II
- The Government was afraid that during the war, when the Germans try to bomb Britain, the children would get killed
- On August 31st, 1939, this mass exodus began
The Evacuation
- Millions of people were evacuated, mostly children.
- Most of the evacuation happened on the first four days of September
- Children carried small valises that held some food, a change of clothing and a gas mask.
Life as an Evacuee
- Evacuees were sent to live with host families
- Although many of the evacuees were home sick, they also enjoyed living in the countryside.

- While most children had good experiences, there were some who did not
- Host families had the chance to choose which evacuee they wanted so the saying... stuck in their memories
Effectiveness of Evacuation
Labeling Children
Scary huh?
Gas Masks
Effects of the Evacuation
"I'll Take That One"
- The evacuees did not come out of the war unscathed.
- “The forgotten victims of World War Two were the children.” ~ Juliet Gardiner.

- By January 1940, because of the "Phoney war", some children returned home
- Others stayed until the war ended
- Millions of children owe their lives to Operation Pied Piper
