Evacuation

Because of German bombing many children were moved out of big cities. They went to safer places in the countryside and small towns.

38000 children were evacuated during the war.  Mothers with babies and old people were evacuated as well.

Some schools were evacuated as a group.  They took teachers and pupils and carried on lessons in a new place.

Children were only allowed to take a few things with them when they were evacuated.  They took a few clothes, some food and their gas masks.  They had to wear name labels like the boy on the costume page.

Despite evacuation 219 school children were killed in the war.
