World War II

Primary Resources to support the teaching of World War II / WW2

World War II started in 1939 when Germany invaded Poland. Great Britian then declared war on Germany. Many countries were involved and over 50 million people were killed.

Many children who lived in big cities were evacuated to the countryside.

People had to carry gas masks to protect themselves and there were air raid shelters in many major cities. Everybody was issued with a ration book which was used for food, clothing, furniture and fuel.

This collection includes artefacts for an informative display and to promote discussion on the biggest war in living history.

Many of the replica artefacts in this collection have been sourced from museums in the United Kingdom and the United States of America, making them as authentic as possible.
