These are some of the things children wrote in their school books in South London during WW2. The innocence of children during such a dangerous and sad time in their lives can still make you smile. :)

“In Wartime Children Who Lived In
Big Cities Had to Be Evaporated
Because It Was Safer in The Country.”



“Sometimes in The War They Take Presners and Keep
Them as Ostriges Until the War is Over.
Some Prisners End Up in Consterpation Camps”
