Wartime experiences

2nd July 2004 at 01:00
As the number of Second World War survivors dwindles, a pack of firsthand resources, such as those on offer from Colchester Museums, becomes all the more valuable. It comprises wartime photos, fascinating ephemera, such as a painting by a prisoner in a neighbouring camp, and dozens of searching questions. The materials are all local in character, but the issues they illuminate - rationing, evacuees' experiences, women's work, the impact of bombing, the arrival of peace - are of broad historical importance. The background information and advice on compiling oral history is admirable in its scope and good sense. The pack and supporting notes can be downloaded from the Colchester Museums website.
