History - Keeping watch on war

2nd April 2010 at 01:00

Dundee pupils are set to learn about the Second World War from the people who lived through it as children.

The Black Watch Museum and Dundee City Council have put together a CD containing videos, photographs and worksheets to relate the experiences of youngsters during wartime to their modern-day counterparts.

"Dundee Kids Like You in the Second World War" looks at issues such as evacuation, rationing, education and employment on Dundee's home front from 1939-45.

The museum has worked closely with the Harris Academy to develop the resource, which is now going out to city primaries and secondaries as part of Black Watch's educational programme.

Fraser Brown, a member of the museum's education outreach team, said: "We wanted pupils in the Dundee schools we visit to be aware that history is made by everyone - including kids like them and not just the great and the good."
