What would you like to do?
the children in the first world war didnt really do anything because they were all evacuated to save them from getting hurt ^^^^ Evacuation procedures were not used in World …War 1. In World War 1, younger children would be kept hidden from the war by their mothers, to stop panic from the children. If you were over the age of around 7, you would probably go to work, or help out and fill the missing places of the men at war.
back in time, open up a page in the history book
For almost six years from 1939 to 1945 Britain fought the toughest war it had ever experienced. World War II was total war - every person, every business, every service was i…nvolved. Britain did not fight alone, the war also involved many countries. World War II involved 61 countries. One side called the Axis and one side called the Allies. Fifty million people lost their lives and hundreds of millions people were injured. World War II brought a lot of suffering and hardship to thousands of children all over in Australia. There were heaps of dangers at this time especially when German bombers made terrifying night raids. Families were broken up when men went to fight in the war. Some children's dads also never came back home. There were air raid shelters in every school in case there was a bombing. Some people also had air raid shelters in their gardens. All windows and lights were blacked out so it would make it harder for the enemy plane to spot where they lived. Most people carried gas masks in case there was a possible gas attack. People were given rationing cards if they wanted to buy their food, clothes or anything for their everyday needs. Although some things such as bed spreads were free. Children probably had a bath only once a week or perhaps once a month. Clothes were not something that worried children too much. Australian children had always mucked about in their old clothes and had often resented the care with which their parents expected them to treat their new and best clothes. Often they went through summer with their bare feet. Alien children in World War II are children who were born in Australia and have names that sound like people from German and Italian origin.
The main problem would be that millions of European women lost their husbands or fiancees in the conflict. Especially in Britain, Germany and France there was a very serious d…earth of young manhood after the War. This meant that many women were widowed, as well as a great many more who never married, and widows usually did not re-marry as young men due to the millions of fatalites were greatly outnumbered by young women in that postwar generation. Millions of children were raised by lone, struggling mothers. This situation affected myriad people. It is hard for us to visualize the full extent of this problem as we have not experienced such a vast depletion of men since that time. The carnage of WW ONE was unprecendented and, so far at least, there has been nothing to equal its effects in Western Europe in the annals of modern history. Other men were affected with poisonous gas or lost their limbs in the constant artillery pummelling and could never function as healthy human beings again. This must have also had a serious effect on family life in the postwar years. Some children must have suffered by a degree of evacuation that apparently occurred, or just by the separation from the influence of a father in combat when this occurred during the formative years of children.
Answer They were evacuated to the countryside and werent treated very well.
Life for the children was very tough during that period of time. Children were depressed. Because their dads and brothers went to war. But also was the problem that mostly the…y could not afford to buy food, or clothing. Some did not have radios. There were no TVs back then. Children did not know what was going to happen to them. They could wake up and would have to be taken to a new place. Because everywhere was very dangerous. It's kind of sad when you think about it. That's why children should be thankful for what they have right now.
Answer Because it was a WAR
women worked in the places of where men used to work like in farming ,stoking the fire and so on . old children helped their siblings like looking after the baby and stu…ff
There were many reasons to why the British Government decided to evacuate Children, all of these essentially in aid of the war effort and because of the threat of being …bombed. Firstly, the war effort demanded not only soldiers for the war front, but workers on the home front, supplying food, ammunition, weapons and other resources required to fight the war. Laborious jobs, and jobs in general, tended to be for men only, this rapidly changed, as most men were either fighting, injured, or dead, women were allowed to work in order to replace them and keep production going, who then were left to look after the children? Children were most likely to get in the way of their parents as they would have to look after them, or be worrying about them. The government did not want capable parents sitting at home caring for their children, they wanted them contributing towards the war effort in any way possible. Having children remain in the cities could potentially have slowed down industrial production, therefore jeopardising the war effort, which was critical considering British soldiers were fighting away on the western front, and supplies needed to reach them rapidly. Evacuating the children was the logical thing to do in order to solve this. The Safety of the Children was paramount, they were after all the next generation, and so needed to be protected. Having parents worry about the safety of their children was also damaging towards the war effort, they needed to be focused on their jobs. Britain's major cities were ideal targets for bombings, as they were the most populated; most lighted up and therefore easiest to see from the sky, and were the c entre of Industrial production. Leaving the children in them would put them at risk, and so evacuating them to the countryside - an unlikely bombing target - was the rational thing to do. This meant that the children were much safer, and it left their parents and siblings, who would have most likely been working, to carry on doing so, unworried about their children being bombed and having to look after them. Propaganda was an extremely important part of the war effort, for both the home front and the war front, Radio, Theatres, and Posters such as the " The Hun and Home", and "Daddy what did you do in the Great war?" Were used to raise the morale of workers and soldiers. These posters were essentially used to encourage men to enlist in the army, to protect their families, for pride, and also to encourage workers to work hard. The deaths of their children would certainly contradict these propaganda posters and lower the morale of both the Soldiers, and workers. This would be counterproductive - if soldiers lost their lost their children, what would they have left to fight for? If workers lost their children, what would they have left to work for?
