World War 1 affected England and Germany.
Thousands of children were evacuated from Europe to England and America by ships. Many thousands were sent from England to Canada and America by ships, but this stopped when many children died on a ship that was torpedoed. Some of the children could not be reunited with their families after the war because parents had died or had been forced to move away by bombings. Many small children did not even remember their parents after the war.
The children in England who had to be evacuated from the blitz bombing were called "Evacuees". Now to be funny, they were called lads, lassies, kids, children, bonnies.
Women in America during World War 1 worked as nurses and other medical helpers. These women also stayed home and took care of children and taught in schools.
