What Was The War Like, Grandma?
A recreation of the war years from an Australian child’s view point.
Grandma Emmy remembers what the war was like. Listening to the wireless each night for news from the front-lines, crouching in trenches during air-raid drills at school, raising money and knitting socks for the war effort. Blackouts and sandbagging, but also playing with searchlights and the first taste of hamburgers. Although the fighting was far away, everyone’s lives changed forever.
