WORLD WAR II – LONDON . What was life like for a young boy in London during WWII? Join us in the Gallery as David Gropper recalls his childhood during the London blitz and after. Hear what it was like to be evacuated to the countryside to avoid the bombing, what an Anderson and Morrison shelter were like, and what a typical school “uniform” consisted of. He’ll also explain why a good sense of hearing was necessary for survival. He will be happy to answer questions at the end .
