A North East Coastal Town
Hull was one the most heavily bombed cities during World War II. Over 1,200 were killed, 3,000 injured and more than 150,000 were made homeless by German raids on the city. Referred to as ‘a north east coast town’ by the press, much of the rest of the country were unaware of the devastation caused. It is in this context that we are studying the Second World War.
We have begun by discussing the outbreak of war and how children must have felt as Chamberlain made his announcement on September 3rd 1939.
