Friends Reunited: Reuniting WWII Evacuees at the Museum of Welsh Life

With the dark clouds of war looming over Britain in 1938, the Government decided to take steps to ensure the safety of children and the vulnerable in industrial or urban areas that might be the targets of enemy attacks or bombings. Over the war years, a million and a half children were moved to safer, rural areas, many thousands of them to Wales, including Nina Bawden, author of the children's classic Carrie's War. To reunite the evacuees that stayed in Wales during the Second World War with their friends and host families, the Museum of Welsh Life welcomes the war children to meet again on St David's Day for a day of memories, stories, music and reunion.
